Class requirements include scheduling a meeting with the university instructor of record for the undergraduate internship program to discuss approval of the internship site. This meeting should take place during advising time the quarter before you plan to register for your internship. Upon approval of your advisor you will then schedule an appointment with the internship coordinator. A contract must be established between an approved facility and the Department of Kinesiology, Louisiana Tech University. The contract is initiated from the Department of Kinesiology and sent to the selected site for written approval by signature. Once the agreement is received by the department, it is forwarded on to Louisiana Tech Executive Administration for approval and signatures. After completion of all required signatures and return receipt of the agreement to the Kinesiology department, the student will be notified by the internship coordinator they have been approved for their internship at the facility. This step must be completed at least one quarter before the student plans to register for the internship experience.
The chosen site must involve areas of physical activity, sport, health promotion & wellness, rehabilitation, and/or fitness. The student will need to be supervised daily by an experienced, qualified professional that is employed by the facility. Student may pursue internships at any approved location in the United States. Although most internship sites do not offer a stipend, it is permissible to accept paid internships.
