The Summer Internship in Lived Theology is an immersion program designed to complement the numerous existing urban and rural service immersion programs flourishing nationally and globally by offering a unique opportunity to think and write theologically about service.
The internship is open to UVA undergraduate students in any field of study. Selected participants spend the summer interning with the partnering institution of their choice. Each intern works directly with a UVA faculty member who acts as a theological mentor, offering guidance in reading, discussing and writing about selected texts. Each intern also has a site mentor who shapes the intern’s work experience and may act as a conversation partner in the intern’s academic and theological exploration. Throughout the summer, interns blog for the Project on Lived Theology website; at the end of the summer, interns complete a final project and present their work at a public event.
Due to COVID-19, the Summer Internship in Lived Theology has been suspended indefinitely. The program will resume when we are able to safely operate within our outreach programs.
