Undergraduate Internship

UCF Division of Kinesiology

An internship with the Division of Kinesiology is an exciting, hands-on work experience that allows students to apply classroom learning to real-world settings. Students work closely under the guidance and support of an approved preceptor who is an expert in the field of kinesiology or exercise science.

In conjunction with the internship experience, students are simultaneously enrolled in the course ‘APK4926 Undergraduate Internship in Kinesiology’ and are required to complete class assignments as a part of their interactive learning at sites.  Students who are completing an internship for course credit are required to both work as a student intern at an approved site and complete required coursework in APK4926 as a part of this learner-centered experience.

Students who wish to complete an internship for college credit with the Division of Kinesiology can apply in their junior or senior year.
