Experienced-Based Education is an internship-for-credit program unique to Bethany College. By participating in an EBE, Bethany students earn academic credit while job shadowing or interning.

  • create an educational plan in coordination with their worksite supervisor;
  • attend an EBE orientation;
  • journal during the internship;
