RESEARCH AND TEACHING AREAS

The School of Health and Exercise Sciences Practicum Program is designed to provide 4th year Human Kinetics students with an opportunity to gain practical work experience in a health-related work environment. Students can register for the practicum courses, HMKN 401 and HMKN 402, in any of the 3 terms of their final academic year. This is an excellent opportunity for students to apply theoretical knowledge acquired throughout their degree in a workplace setting.
