Kinesiology Undergraduate Degree

KIN 492 / 493 Internship in Kinesiology

Course Description

This Internship Course (the “KINternship”) is designed to be a culminating experience for students who will graduate with a Major in Kinesiology. Our hope for you during this internship is that you will gain a practical experience in the Kinesiology domain, acquire skills and knowledge that could help with a potential career, and apply knowledge that you have learned throughout your undergraduate degree in a practical setting. We are pleased and excited to have each Kinesiology major represent the Kinesiology Department, the College of Education, and MSU at your respective internship sites. In order to get the most out of your internship experience, we suggest you start considering internship possibilities and looking out for new potential experiences as soon as you have decided Kinesiology will be your major. A minimum of three (3) credit hours of internship experience is required for graduation from the Kinesiology program. Students must work 60 hours* for each credit earned

*As of May 14, 2018 students will be required to work 45 hours for each credit earned.

KIN 492 / 493 Enrollment Process

THE KIN 492 / 493 ENROLLMENT PROCESS
All KIN Majors in their Junior and Senior years will be automatically enrolled in the online mandatory, “KIN 492 / 493 Pre-Enrollment Orientation Module” on D2L. This Pre-Enrollment Orientation Module will remain available to you throughout your Junior and Senior years. You will need to complete this course before emailing Keri Morrison the “Site Approval Questions.” This course should take no more than 1.5 hours to complete.

Determining KIN 492 versus KIN 493

Taking KIN 492 versus KIN 493 is based on the specific job duties a student will complete at their internship site. KIN 493 is for internship sites that are heavily rooted in physiology, and thus requires students to take KIN 411 (Laboratory Experiences in Exercise Physiology) either prior to or concurrently with the internship class. Please keep in mind, KIN 310 (Physiological Bases of Physical Activity) is a pre-requisite for KIN 411 and should be taken into account as you are planning.
