Field experiences and Internships are a central component of a student's total education preparation in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism. As such, each student must complete the PIR Experience Requirement and the PRT 4828 (the Senior Internship) as part of his or her Parks, Recreation, and Tourism degree. Note: PRT 4828 has a restricted course number that requires an application and approval process.

Pre-requisites, policies, requirements, and application forms are available within the Internship Handbook. The applications must be submitted by the deadline below to the PRT Coordinator of Internships.
