Swedes@Work is an on-campus Experience Based Education (EBE) program beginning in Spring 2020. The Swedes@Work program offers exclusive, paid, on-campus experiential learning opportunities to students. The EBE program at Bethany allows students to earn credit and learn through professional experiences outside of the classroom. Students should approach EBEs as they would full-time, permanent work.

Swedes@Work experiences are paid $10/hour and are worth 3 credit hours (120 working hours = ~10 hours/week). The Swedes@Work program is funded by the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

The Swedes@Work program is designed to provide opportunities for students to develop technical and transferable skills in a professional setting in order to become more career-ready. Any student qualifying for specific Swedes@Work internships may apply–there are no specific program requirements for GPA, classification, or experience.
