Each Applied Exercise Science student is required to perform a six-credit (270 hours) internship during their senior year. This internship experience can be during the summer, fall or spring semester, and averages about 20 hours per week.

Students will work with our internship coordinator to identify an appropriate site for the type of work you wish to perform. Then, you work at the site under the joint-supervision of Applied Exercise Science faculty and a site supervisor.

The list below includes some, but certainly not all, of the internship opportunities you find available through our program.
