Students enrolled in Health & Fitness Management bachelor of Science degree program are required to complete an internship related to their area of study. Students must have completed all Health & Fitness Management core classes prior to enrollment in the internship program. The purpose of the internship is to provide a mechanism for students to assimilate learning experiences in the classroom with real world situations. The internship consists of an experiential learning experience for 15 hours per week for the entire semester in Health & Fitness focus of the student's choice. Students are expected to arrange their own internships after consulting with their advisor. There are some agencies with which the University has negotiated possible internships. However, if the student is investigating another agency, it must be approved by the program coordinator to ensure an appropriate placement. All students enrolled in this course are required to attend the orientation session which is scheduled during the first week of the semester. The intern is required to meet all of the requirements set up by the agency such as schedules, dress code, health history (physical examination, immunizations, etc...) and other pertinent requirements that will relate to that agency. Students should also schedule appointments with their prospective agencies to negotiate the particulars of that facility. The final requirement for each intern is the completion of a portfolio. It is given to the instructor supervising the internships for that semester. Grades are determined by the combination of the instructor's evaluation of the submitted weekly logs and the site supervisor's evaluation of the intern.
