Healthcare and Sports Science

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Students will have the opportunity to engage in real-world experience in the healthcare environment where they can learn and grow in areas that may offer future employment opportunities. While in the healthcare and sports industry setting, students will spend the semester gaining experience with the healthcare and sports exercise industries through site visits, clinical experiences, and instruction from experts in these fields. Designed together with leaders from the health industry, students will have a firm understanding of the mind, body, and physical health of humans in relation to sports and science.
