Our students have the option of completing an internship, PES 480 or a research experience, PES 479, for their culminating experience of the major.
Internship experiences range widely as their are many different student interests in kinesiology majors. Students participate in internships related to fitness (YMCA’s, fitness facilities), movement specialties (Strong Museum of Play, daycare facilities, older adult facilities), dance kinesiology, and clinical related internships in preparation for physical therapy, occupational therapy, or athletic training.
Internships are completed during your final semester, but must be set up the semester prior. For questions related to kinesiology internships contact Dr. Pamela Haibach-Beach,
