The Internship is a culminating learning experience for students in Health, Human Performance and Recreation. This experience allows students the opportunity to practice the application of theory and apply the knowledge acquired through academic preparation, while learning skills of an entry level practitioner. Experience at an Internship site offering Health, Human Performance and/or Recreation services not only draws on major and minor course offerings, but makes possible the development of professional skills. The Internship is an in-depth supervised work and study experience, preferably at the supervisor or mid-management level, where the student has a degree of responsibility for planning, directing and supervising the work of others.
Prerequisites for PEPROF 493: Health, Human Performance and Recreation Internship are PEPROF 209: Investigating Community Professions in Physical Education; within nine units of completing the major and minor; application materials filed by the due date in the semester prior to placement; and consent of the Program Director. For clinical placements (i.e., cardiac rehabilitation) and university placements (i.e., strength and conditioning, recreation sports) a grade point average of at least 3.0 is required.
Internship proposals complete with resume, learning objectives, and a signed site agreement form are due on March 31st for Summer Session; April 15th for Fall Session; and November 15th for Spring Session. No exceptions to these deadlines are possible. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with the internship coordinator (Dr. Ednie) ahead of the deadline to discuss their proposals.
