Clinical Experiences

A fundamental part of the Exercise Science program includes participation in clinical experiences. Clinical experiences include any field experience – practicum, internship or volunteer hours – in on- or off-campus learning environments that provide students with practical, hands-on experience. Clinical experiences help students synthesize theory into practice and transition from student to professional.
