Internships in Health and Sport Sciences

Within the Department of Health and Sport Sciences, undergraduate internship experiences are required and designed as culminating experiences that provide extensive, as well as intensive, hands-on work experience opportunities. The intern, while still a student, is expected to assume a responsible and comprehensive role that is commensurate with that of a full-time professional. In that vein, interns, in collaboration with their supervisors, are expected to establish objectives to be achieved during the internship experience. Credit hours assigned to internships range from 3 to 12 hours, depending on the requirements of various concentrations in the department.

Students enrolling in internship programs (Dietetics, Exercise & Sport Science, Health Promotion, Community Physical Education (non-licensure), and Sport & Leisure Management) must complete prerequisites and program requirements in placements arranged by Dr. Stan Walls, HSS Coordinator of Internships, with the exception of Dietetics students who should contact Mary Catherine Schallert.
