Hands-on, practical experience
At WSU, you learn from the best in the classroom and put your new knowledge to use helping Pac-12, intramural, and club-level athletics happen — so you're ready to leap right into your profession when you graduate.
And thanks to the close ties between the Pullman campus and the health-science programs on the Spokane campus, you have access to the opportunities of a major regional medical hub.
- Athletic training majors get priceless experience working directly with Pac-10 athletes and one-on-one mentorship from the University's world-class athletic training staff.
- Sport management students profit from practicum courses and a 10-12 week internship.
- In the kinesiology-based sport science major, you learn the scientific principles of movement studies and get practical experience teaching wellness and recreational activity and coaching community sports teams.
- The exercise physiology and metabolism program prepares you to take national examinations for both Registered Dietitian and ACSM Exercise Specialist certifications. Junior and senior-level courses are located at WSU Spokane, where you learn from practicing professionals.
