Bethel was the only school that kept in contact with me continually. I really knew they wanted me to be here… they knew who I was instead of just a name on a list of thousands of students.

Experiential Learning


You will design your own internship experience, which is then supervised by a faculty member.

This is a graded 140+ hour experience. You’re free to work to gain general experience in the junior-year internship or to develop a senior-year internship in a specialized field. For example, if you plan to enter advertising, you can develop an internship with a marketing company near Bethel, or wherever you choose, over the summer. Some students have used this opportunity to begin making the transition into their family-run business. The overall goal of the internship courses is to better prepare you for work life after Bethel and to make you more competitive in the job market.
