The Global Studies program seeks to assist students to have a challenging, enriching, and life-changing experience through the internship program. The internship program allows students the opportunity to synthesize and apply concepts learned throughout the program, and to gain real-life experience to help determine the student’s career path. The internship placement should fit as closely as possible to the outcomes for the area of concentration the student has followed within the Global Studies Program. Internships are required for all concentrations except Applied Linguistics/Bible Translation. These internships consist of 300 hours during the 2nd or 3rd year (primarily summers). Internship requirements vary per concentration.
Organizations Offering Internships
While the Global Studies Department seeks to provide students with ample opportunities for internship placements, we only endorse those organizations that are specifically partnering with the GS program. The organizations listed below, both local and global, provide internship opportunities for students looking to work in this field.
