Experiential Learning Opportunities

Ministry Fellowship Program

The Ministry Fellowship Program provides qualified students in the Department of Church Ministries the opportunity to spend the Fall and Spring semesters of their senior year gaining hands-on, real-world ministry experience at an approved church under the supervision of seasoned ministry professionals.

Global Internships

Students enrolled in any degree program can earn academic credit through participation in a Global Internship. If you have never experienced hands-on ministry in a cross-cultural context, then this might be the perfect opportunity for you to broaden your experiential horizons.

Global Teams

Turn the next school break into a hands-on, cross-cultural learning experience. If you're looking for a short-term, international experience, consider getting involved with a Global Team. Most trips are scheduled during Christmas, Spring and Summer breaks.

LU Network

The LU Network allows students and alumni to search for internship and job opportunities. If you're unsure where to begin in your search for a job or internship, the LU Network is a great place to start.

Professional Career Counseling

School of Religion students have access to professional career counseling through the Career Center. If you need help finding an internship, preparing for an interview, or drafting a resume, you can schedule a meeting with our School of Religion Career Counselor, Tyler Holder.
