Exercise Science and Fitness Leadership students complete an internship (KIN 499) during their senior year.

  • Students are encouraged to start identifying internship goals and sites in their junior year. It may be beneficial to the student to volunteer or do a job shadow prior to committing to their internship site to get a closer look at an industry and/or profession, so as to avoid selecting at a site that is not a good fit for their internship.
  • Students must fulfill all pre req courses (e.g. KIN 485, 400 and 307) before doing their internship.
  • Information on how to set up your internship and expectations for the internship will be covered in KIN 485 - a mandatory pre req course for KIN 499.
  • Students are required to submit 'Pre Internship’ forms/paperwork during the semester prior to taking KIN 499. You must submit your completed ‘Application Form’ (provided in KIN 485) to the Internship Instructor (cc your proposed Agency Supervisor) for approval on or before the deadline for your anticipated KIN 499 semester enrollment. Deadlines are as follows:
    • Spring Semester KIN 499 – November 10th
    • Summer Semester KIN 499 – March 20th
    • Fall Semester KIN 499 – July 20th
