What Types of Internships are Available to HHP Exercise Science Majors?

The Health & Human Performance Department, through its Field Experience Director, offers direction to students wishing to arrange an internship or field experience in the community. The Field Experience Director will work directly with an internship site to establish a specialized program of study.
