Flexible Scheduling

You will have time to pursue a minor or add other “purposeful” courses in addition to your major so that you can truly customize your learning to meet your end goals.

Practical Internships

Variable credit internship opportunities allow you to tailor your capstone experience to meet your needs and goals. Additionally, our Exercise Sport Science Department’s “internship pipeline” will provide you with a seamless route from the classroom to your career path.

Peer Engagement

Colloquium experiences exist for upper-level students so that you can experience your undergraduate program alongside others in your major, which means more synergy and accountability with your peers.

Relevant Coursework

Our sport management and health promotion and performance curricula have been newly revised and are data-driven so that the courses you take align with core competencies that are highly marketable and desired by employers.

Experiential Learning

Our sport management and health promotion and performance programs have focused, experiential learning within nearly every core class.
