Luther’s academic program stresses education beyond the classroom walls and encourages students to engage in real-world learning in order to test their career goals and gain valuable professional experience. Internships are a crucial component of this experiential learning, and Luther helps match religion majors with choice internships that ask them to use their ethical training and religious education within the context of a professional workplace.
In addition to a variety of congregational settings, recent Luther religion majors have interned in such places as the International Labor Rights Forum (Washington, D.C.), the Nobel Peace Prize Forum (Minneapolis, MN), the Mayo Clinic Transplant Center (Rochester, MN), the Lutheran Coalition for Public Policy (St. Paul, MN), and Lutheran Outdoors in South Dakota (Sioux Falls, SD).
For more information about setting up an internship, visit the Luther College Career Center’s internship program. To begin the process of setting up an internship, please make an appointment first with the Career Center, and then with the Department of Religion's internship coordinator.
