Internships provide Johnson University’s undergraduate students with opportunities to apply skills and knowledge to real-life situations. This hands-on experience contributes to spiritual formation and a well-rounded education.

Johnson’s undergraduate students are required to complete an internship/practicum or equivalent field experience as part of their education. Most programs incorporate 3 credit hours of an internship/practicum; some include the opportunity for an extended, 6-month experience. Internships usually take place in the summer following the junior year and/or during the senior year of college.

Internship locations can span the world and include:

  • Traditional church settings
  • Faith-based organizations
  • Mission agencies
  • Nonprofit organizations

Internships are designed to match with the student’s abilities and passions, meet core educational requirements, and provide valuable experience in a real-world setting.
