Internships

  • While classroom input is inherent in educational programs at Seattle University, the professional application of academic theory gives students experiences that will add to their personal and professional maturity. The Internship is a requirement for all students in the Sport and Exercise Science Department of the College of Arts and Sciences.

    The internship experience provides the student with the opportunity to ask pertinent questions, make observations, and to participate in organization activities. All internship experiences must be undertaken in an agency that guarantees to provide the student with supervision by a certified professional possessing appropriate credentials, depending on the student’s interest.
