Spend over a year 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. Starting their junior year, students live overseas for 13 months 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.

I spent most of my time in Kenya teaching 4th graders math, music, and Bible class, implementing what I learned in my Education in Missions degree.– Bradyn Allen, BGU Class of 2023
