Seniors in the Kinesiology Department are required to do an internship to foster community connections and improve career specific competencies prior to graduation. The student chooses where to do the internship in conversation with the adviser. The on campus adviser assists in making initial contacts and setting up the experience. Learning outcomes established by the Kinesiology Department are assessed by the on site supervisor.
