Internship Program in Exercise Science, Fitness Management and Personal Training and Sports Management
Students following the exercise science, fitness management and personal training plans of study complete an internship with a community agency approved by the School of Physical Education and Tourism Management's Department of Kinesiology. Students apply approximately one year before the expected internship placement.  A minimum overall GPA of 2.0 is required at the time of the application. The internship assignment will entail full-time work for 12 weeks (summer, fall or spring). In all of the plans of study there are prerequisite classes that must be taken prior to doing this internship, thus this internship is typically one of the last academic responsibilities the student will do prior to graduation.  Depending upon the plan of study a student is following will determine the length of the internship--most are considered full-time for the length of the semester.  Only in rare and exceptional cases will students be allowed to participate in an internship at their previous or present place of employment.

Internship Program in Tourism, Conventions and Event Management (TCEM)
TCEM majors are required to complete a minimum of 300 hours of work experience in a tourism/hospitality/sport/event related business. Students must be of junior standing (have completed at least 56 credit hours) and have at least a 2.0 GPA to enroll in the internship course.
