The internship experience (HTH 4936) is required for seniors seeking a degree in kinesiology, but not pursuing a teaching certificate. The internship is recommended to be completed during the final semester of the degree. The internship gives the student an opportunity to apply and integrate the cognitive knowledge and skills developed in the classroom in real-world settings.
The major goals of the program are:
To prepare students for entry into the kinesiology related fields.
To ensure that graduates are knowledgeable regarding program development, planning, implementation and evaluation.
To ensure that graduates have internalized positive attitudes and values toward the mission and goals of kinesiology disciplines.
Kinesiology majors are eligible to apply for an internship if they have:
Completed all degree requirements of the major and support work.
A minimum UTSA GPA of 2.5.
For the fall and spring semesters interns need to be within 12 hours of graduation including the 6 hours of the internship. During the summer semester, interns need only KIN 4936.
