Internships

Internships are a vital piece of the academic experience at Bethel. They provide structured, relevant off-campus learning experiences for our students while giving them the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to practical applications.

Each year, students from our department fill over 100 internship positions in the community, contributing to organizations through new and creative ideas while providing short-term assistance. Internships give organizations the chance to evaluate potential employees and give students the chance to assess the fit between their career goals and the organization.
