You will be given instructions to complete your field experience while attending a class in your major that includes field experience. For more information, contact professor Ryan Zimmerman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Sport Coaching Education
Sport Coaching Education students typically find their own practice location, according to their interests. If you need help finding a location, contact Chad Smith at email@example.com.
You must have instructor permission to sign up for PEP 4860C. You may contact Smith to discuss your placement.
- Outdoor & Community Recreation Education
Locating an Internship Site
Set up a meeting with Barbara Dirks (firstname.lastname@example.org) to review your internship. Barbara will submit an override to allow you to register for the course and will review the syllabus/course requirements/deadlines with you.
- Health Promotion
Locating an Internship Site
Print and fill out the Health Promotion Internship Contract (pdf).
Once you have completed the internship contract, sign it and have your internship supervisor sign it.
Make an appointment with your on-site internship supervisor at their agency prior to your starting date to fill out Forms A-C of the Internship Contract. The forms may be scanned and emailed or given directly to the internship coordinator, Barbara Dirks, (email@example.com).
Set up a meeting with Barbara Dirks (firstname.lastname@example.org) to turn your contract in and review your internship. Barbara will submit an override to allow you to register for the course and will review the syllabus/course requirements/deadlines with you.
Note: A health promotion internship must involve responsibilities that directly relate to the field of health promotion and should reflect the Responsibilities and Competencies of a Health Education Specialist. Health Promotion students will NOT receive HLTH 4860 credit for simply observing or shadowing practitioners or providers, nor will students receive credit retroactively for prior experience.
Complement your studies in your HPER major with practical experience at an internship site.
Before registering for an internship, determine how many credits you are going to take during the upcoming semester. You must complete 60 internship hours for each credit hour. Check with your advisor, Brittni Strickland (email@example.com), to be sure that you will have enough upper-division hours to graduate (40 minimum).
New Internship Sites
You are welcome to establish a connection with a new site (one at which a WSU student has not interned), but please be aware that this may require more time. New sites will occasionally require the establishment of a contract of agreement between the site and Weber State University, and it is not uncommon for this process to take more than a month.
Our internship coordinator, Barbara Dirks, will visit Health Promotion and OCRE internship sites half way through the semester. During this visit, she will expect to have time to speak with you and your site supervisor and to have you show her some of the activities on which you have been making progress. If you are engaged at an internship site that is some distance away, and Barbara is not able to visit with you in person, she will arrange a phone call to touch base with you and your site supervisor.
