Practicum & Internship

Practicum (PEP 495)

A practicum is a 1 credit experience in an exercise science and health setting. In the setting, or site, students will spend 40 hours observing and assisting with the day-to-day operations of the facility. Practicum experiences will help students gain a better understanding of career options, requirements for certain types of careers, and professional skills required for a career in exercise science and health.

During each practicum experience, students will apply knowledge and skills that they have learned throughout their program of study, as well as gain new knowledge and skills to become more marketable for graduate school and job opportunities.

For more information download the Practicum and Internship Manual.

Internship (PEP 498)

An internship is a 9 credit experience in an exercise science and health setting that is completed during the last semester before graduation. This capstone experience requires students to be fully immersed in the setting, or site, for 360 hours during one semester. The students will gain valuable experiences that allow them to apply their classroom knowledge and skills in a practical setting. In addition, students will be challenged to understand more about real-world application, develop communication and leadership skills, and grow as young professionals. The experience will help students to achieve career and/or educational goals.

A well-chosen site is an important investment in a student’s development as a young professional and path to a successful career.
