About: Supervised Practical Experience


Welcome to the KIN 3696: Supervised Practical Experience Website!

The Supervised Practical Experience (SPE) is a chance for you to get academic credit for real world, hands on, experience in the field of human movement.

Experiences KIN majors commonly use for SPEs include, but are not limited to:

  • PCAs
  • Healthcare Shadowing
  • Athletic Medicine Internships
  • Personal Training
  • and much, much more!

The experience must apply your knowledge from your Kinesiology coursework, and be related to the study of human movement.

This website contains information on the SPE, including:
  • Frequently asked questions
  • How to Propose
  • Requirements for KIN 3696/Syllabus
  • Resources for expanding upon your SPE

In the Kinesiology major, we hope that your field experience will be the application of your academic knowledge in a real world situation. We want you to carefully consider how each volunteer, paid, and internship experience builds upon one another to help you reach your goals. The SPE is one link in that system.


"I think SPE is one of the best opportunities I've had as an undergraduate student in Kinesiology because I am able to utilize my skills and see that all the class, tests, and reading I've put time into are relevant in the real world."
~Sophia Pulice, KIN major
