The Internship Program in the Exercise and Sports Science major is an experiential education program. The student intern contracts with an organization to provide specific outcomes/services that meet the students' learning goals as well as the needs of the organization. Using work as the foundation, the students actively engage in their own educational and professional growth through conscious reflection and analysis. They grow by relating to professionals in the field, practicing what they have been learning conceptually, striving for high but attainable expectations, and systematically reflecting on their experiences. To be eligible to participate in an internship the student must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher in the major. The Internship is 6 credits and a total of 240 working hours at the internship site.
