Internships

The goal of the internship program at Tyndale is to wed the biblical and theological foundations of our seminary curriculum with practical ministry experience that is directed toward vocational Christian Ministry. We believe that rigorous biblical and theological studies have a very practical aim: to fulfill the mission of God for His people (Matt. 28: 18-20). Every student in the Master of Divinity (MDiv) program or the Master of Evangelical Theology (MET) is required to complete an internship.

Internships for MDiv students are done externally. Students are assisted in this process by the Director of Internships. This includes discussion and assistance of identifying a field supervisor. Each student is encouraged to meet with the Director of Internships to think through the best possibilities in terms of what the student’s goals are for future ministry. Internships can be both full-time or part-time. Full-time internships are often completed in the summer prior to the year of graduation. However, they can be scheduled over longer periods of time during the school year.

The internship for MET students is internal in nature. There are two basic tracts: leadership or theological educator. The student should choose which tract interests them based on their future ministry goals. Students are usually placed under the supervision of a Tyndale professor for mentoring in these areas. The internship spans the fall and spring terms of the student’s last year in the program.
