Live Interculturally

Spend time immersing yourself in a new culture, working with experienced ministry organizations, and gaining hands-on experience through Bethany Global University’s Global Internship program. 

Taking the Classroom to the Field

All BGU undergraduate students take part in our Global Internship program, gaining hands-on experience in their field of study. Beginning their sophomore year, students have a choice to live overseas learning what it means to serve and work in a cross-cultural setting. We have sites all over the world where students learn from experienced ministry partners.


What You’ll Learn

During Global Internship, students take online classes while serving overseas that directly correlate with their field of study. You’ll learn a new language, cross-cultural communication, social structures, religion, and different worldviews. Experience for yourself what it means to explore a career in intercultural ministry and missions.
