Internships and Research
Professional experiences give you valuable contacts and a competitive edge at job interviews or with career advancement opportunities. In addition to music performance opportunities at St. Kate's, you can enhance your professional and leadership skills through:
Assistant Mentoring Program (AMP)
AMP is an innovative, paid work-and-learning experience that pairs St. Kate’s students in their junior or senior year with faculty or staff mentors on a specific project. Alumna Jessica Garceau worked with Liturgy Coordinator Lori True on organizing the Campus Ministry's music library and directing the choir. Learn more about AMP in the University’s magazine, SCAN or on the AMP website »
Singer and award-winning pianist Jocelyn Hagen was the Department of Music and Theater’s 2011 composer-in-residence. "It's a way for our students, performers and community members to recognize that composers are not all long gone and unreachable," says Professor Patricia Connors, director of St. Kate’s choirs. This residency includes class lectures and rehearsal time with students. Learn more in the University’s magazine, SCAN »

Opportunities for students include music ministry (cantors, Chapel singers, instrumentalists, celebration singers), liturgical dance and liturgical ministry, such as readers, greeters or Communion ministers.
