Exercise Science students are encouraged to undertake an internship during their time at East Stroudsburg University. These internship experiences provide exceptional opportunity for the student to apply their knowledge in a professional setting.

The internships also provide an opportunity for Exercise Science students to experience the careers that are available to them when they graduate.

Below we provide further information on the internship opportunities available within each degree program offered by the Department of Exercise Science.

BS Exercise Science

The undergraduate internship experience allows the student to apply the skills and knowledge accrued during their formal Exercise Science education in an environment that requires the sustained use of professional practices.

Typical internship sites chosen by Exercise Science undergraduates include:

  • Velocity Sports Performance
  • Pocono Heart and Vascular
  • Elevations Fitness Club
  • St. Luke's Health Center
  • Pocono Wellness

Recently, Exercise Science undergraduate students have been offered the opportunity to take part in a Puerto Rican Cultural Immersion program hosted by the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras as well as to complete some of their internship requirements on the tropical island.

Acitivities undertaken by the Exercise Science undergraduates who participated in the first nine day visit during spring break 2009 included:

  • Exploring the history and culture of Puerto Rico with a series of lectures at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras
  • Field trips to a tropical rain forest, coffee plantations, art museums and night kayaking around a bioluminescent bay
  • Extensive seminars on athletic injuries, psycho-social aspects of sports in Puerto Rico, human cadaver analyses
  • Tours of physical rehabilitation hospitals and fitness facilities on the island

Get ready for Exercise Science in Puerto Rico during future spring breaks!
