United Methodist Communications Internship Program

United Methodist Communications annually selects a limited number of persons to serve as interns in its Nashville office. The types of training experiences are determined by the vocational interests of the applicant and the type of services offered by United Methodist Communications.

Internships may be offered in the following areas: accounting, communication resourcing, conference relations, publications, global health initiatives (Imagine No Malaria), human resources, information management, information technology, internet services, marketing, news writing and editing, production and public relations. However, not all study areas will be available each year.

The leader of the United Methodist Communications team to which the applicant will be assigned and the supervisor with whom the intern will be working make final decisions on the awarding of internships.
