Kinesiology internships

An important part of your kinesiology learning will be hands-on experience in an internship. Northwestern’s Compass Center for Career & Calling will help you prepare for and find an internship that matches your fitness or sport interests and talent. Whether you stay close to campus or venture across the country, the experience will build your resume, increase your professional network, and maybe even lead to landing your first job.
