Course work is designed to meet students' individual interests. Consequently, candidates will be prepared to work on the level that meets their personal target.

Internship Experience

Internship field experiences are offered in a variety of institutional settings, including secondary and higher education, professional, recreational, and corporate fitness levels. The internship experience will give students an opportunity to gain expertise from professional mentors in a setting that is consistent with their career goals. During the internship, students will have the chance to learn from professionals currently working in the field experience the responsibilities required in their chosen area, and make many important contacts that may help further their career. Candidates are required to discuss their career goals with their adviser early in the program to facilitate appropriate internship placement.

Students who want to pursue the degree on a full-time basis may complete the program on a faster track. Most courses are held in the late afternoon or early evening.
