KIN/HLED 4015 - Internship Experience
KIN/HLED 4016 - Research Experience

 

INTERNSHIP FACTS

  • All students are required to complete 6-12 credit hours of internship or research.  One (1.0) credit hour is equivalent to 40 contact/work hours.
  • You must plan for your internship/research experience IN ADVANCE. It is recommended that you begin looking at least one semester in advance to give you time to make arrangements, fill out all needed paperwork and find living arrangements, if needed.
  • YOU are responsible for finding your own internship.  Before you begin, ask yourself, "What is it you really want to experience?"  Search online, look at large corporations, hospitals, universities, etc.
  • The internship/research experience can be completed during the fall, spring, or summer semesters.
