Internship Program

WMU’s internship program is designed to be a partnership with students and their respective college or university. Students receive academic credit in exchange for an internship that involves them in real-life work situations and provides them with educational experiences not obtainable in a classroom setting. 

All of our internships are unpaid in exchange for course credit. Students must be a junior or senior in college to qualify. Internships can be customized to fit the need of the intern. 

Possible Internship Opportunities   


Application Process

Students interested in an internship with WMU should send their resume, course requirements, and the dates that they are available to hr@wmu.org.

I am so thankful for my internship with New Hope Publishers. It helped me gain valuable work experience and learn more about the publishing industry. Everyone made me feel so welcome, and I had the opportunity to do real work, including editing book manuscripts and writing marketing materials. It was such a rewarding experience to see the results of projects that I was a part of, and I know that the skills I learned will help me in my future career.

Interning at WMU was better than I ever could have imagined. I got to experience a real-life work setting (work space, phone, computer included!) and work with very talented, knowledgeable, and caring employees. I was mentored by and worked alongside Editor Janet Erwin on a series of 12 articles for the magazine "Missions Mosaic" as well as making a product that will actually be sold in stores and online! It was refreshing to be so trusted with work that was significant to the company. By the end of the semester, I had a full portfolio and truly felt like one of the team.

Coming into WMU, I was unaware of what to expect as an intern. I was given the task of creating and simplifying an intake assessment form for Christian Women's and Men's Job Corps, a WMU partner. Lena, my supervisor, led me, guided me, and helped me envision what she needed in order to better serve participants. Claudia, another supervisor, took time to help me identify my strengths, encouraged me to set goals, and overall gain confidence in who I am and not just as an intern or future social worker, but as a child of God. WMU completely beat my expectations more than I could have ever imagined - not only the organization, but the people and the time that they put into me not only as an intern but as a person is completing inspiring and encouraging.
