Our philosophy has always been that students will only be excellent professionals if we teach them both the scientific principles and practical skills required. The faculty applies their knowledge and skills to improve the world around them. We expect the same from our students. The faculty involves students in a number of initiatives, so that they may gain experience planning, implementing, and evaluating activities. Whether they be health screenings, athletic contests, or exercise programs the students are involved in every phase of the event. The graduates of our programs have hundreds of hours of practical experience in the field through which they have applied the lessons from the classroom. We pride ourselves on affording students with high quality real world experiences upon completion of the degree.
