  • Research Methods and Design in Exercise Science

As part of the required coursework, students must complete one semester of a supervised internship. Students are assigned to a variety of positions, including sports practices, games, surgeries, general medical rotation, and an off-campus rotation at a high school or sports medicine clinic. These assignments give the students an opportunity to take the lessons from the classroom and apply their techniques in the field.

The School of Education offers several study abroad programs; however, a unique study abroad experience is available for health-related degrees every summer. Baylor in Brazil is a 30 day program in which a group of students travel to several places working with local programs to promote health while taking classes.

Additional international experiences are available to candidates in the School of Education in order to assist them in the understanding of and participation in a global society. The programs are offered in England, Australia, Costa Rica and Hong Kong, and vary from four weeks to a full year, depending on the preference and needs of the students.
