The Department of Health and Physical Education believes the internship program affords students the opportunity to apply acquired cognitive skills and is a valuable supplement to their learning experience. Consequently, there is an expectation that the internship will foster learning and the acquisition of useful professional skills. Internships failing to meet these objectives will not be approved.
Typically, the student intern will be a junior or senior working towards a major or minor in Health, Physical Education, or Sport Management. The department expects the student to have completed the necessary courses to meet the objectives of the internship and possess the habits and motivation to benefit the sponsoring agency.
