Internship Sites & Locations

The Department of Kinesiology has determined that the sites included in this database are appropriate for Kinesiology internships. Some positions may be paid, even if not indicated as such. While there are many appropriate possibilities included in this database, you are welcome to find your own internship. The site supervisor must agree to host you as their intern and follow the guidelines listed in the Kinesiology Internship Manual and your KINE 495 instructor must approve.  Keep in mind that the approval process for a new internship site will require 2-6 weeks before you will be able to start.

Prior to contacting any individuals in the internship database, you should download and read the CSUSM KINESIOLOGY INTERNSHIP MANUAL and obtain an approval to enroll in KINE 495 form.
