The ORU Internship program provides you the opportunity to get hands-on experience while also earning college credit. It also helps you accelerate into the profession and God’s calling on your life.

The ORU Internship Program encourages you to:

  • Work with professionals who will mentor and coach you in professional best practices
  • Learn new tools and skills to build your resume
  • Explore and expand your career options


Your internship may also:

  • Integrate seamlessly into a traditional fall or spring semester, or it may be a summer-specific experience
  • Kick-start your professional network
  • Be paid! (Many internships are paid, and the best internships are competitive.)


The Internship requires:

  • Enrollment in the internship course connected to your specific degree program
  • 150 hours of work to earn 3.0 credits, earned concurrently while enrolled in the course
  • D2L-based weekly assignments and meetings with your internship cohort
  • An application process which may take two months to complete; it’s important you begin the application process the semester prior to your planned enrollment.
