School of Applied Sciences, University of Mississippi

Practicum and Internship

 

Either ES 473 (Practicum) or ES 493 (Internship) is a requirement for the Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science (BSES) at The University of Mississippi.  The practical application of professional course work is a crucial element in the education of students who are preparing for careers in Exercise Science.  The Department of Health, Exercise Science, and Recreation Management at The University of Mississippi provides students extensive practical learning experiences under the direction of an Agency Supervisor and an Exercise Science Practicum Advisor.  The major goal of both the practicum and internship program is to bridge the gap between classroom theory and job realities.
