International Internships

International Internships

The Office of International Education and Internships can help you find an international internship or help you through the process if you have already found one of your choice.  For both residential and online students, we partner with several organizations that provide internships abroad for almost all fields of study here at Liberty University; including Business, Political Science, Communications, Education, Film, Journalism, Public Health, Sport Management, History, Psychology, Music and Theatre Arts, Information Technology, Language, Biology, and more.

If you already have an internship in mind, the International Education & Internships can help you succeed in obtaining an internship overseas. Each organization that is not already an approved program will need to be reviewed and vetted to ensure it meets Liberty's health, safety, and academic standards. The review and vetting process will be completed by the Office of International Education & Internships.

If you are participating in your internship for credit you will need to seek credit approval through your academic department. Please be sure to schedule a meeting with your department to ensure that your internship will meet the requirements for your internship. If this step is not completed you are at risk of not receiving credit for your internship.

The Office of International Education & Internships will assist and guide all students in obtaining student travel documents, international health and travel insurance and other logistics along with the organization you are completing your internship with.

If you are looking for an International Internship, one of our most common internship providers is ISA (International Studies Abroad). You can search their Internships by locations or degree program using the link below:

Course Credit

Internship credit is given to students who have registered for their Liberty University internship course or practicum. Regular Liberty tuition rates apply to this course, and it will be on your transcripts as Liberty credit.

If you do not want to complete your internship for credit there are internships and externships available for students who would prefer not to receive course credit.

International Health and Travel Insurance

All students traveling internationally for university purposes are required to purchase Liberty’s international health and travel insurance. This must be done through the Office of International Education & Internships. Please email internationalinternships@liberty.edu for more information.

Internship Fee

Each student participating in an international internship will be required to pay an internship fee of $250. This payment will go towards health and travel insurance while abroad, application fee and the International Internship fee. Payments can be made in the Student Service Center at the Cashier Window.
