Internships and Exercise and Sport Science Major

Exercise and Sport Science major, Reasons to attend a Christian collegeAre you an athlete? Do you have an interest in sports? Do you have an interest in becoming an athletic trainer, a physical therapist, or something else related? If so, then the Exercise and Sport Science major at Bluefield College may be the right course of study for you! Since 1922, Bluefield College has been a Christ-centered learning community in Southwest Virginia dedicated to developing servant leaders. When in the field of Exercise and Sport Science, one big part of your education would be internships. Bluefield College students have a variety of internships that they can choose to apply for while in the program. These internships include:

  • The Bluefield College Athletic Training Room
  • Physical & Occupational Therapy Services, Inc.
  • Greater Bluefield Community Center
  • Bluefield Blue Jays
  • Brown Chiropractic Center

These are just a few of the internships available to our students! You are not restricted to these places. If you find another internship that you want to pursue, then you are more than welcome to do so! While at Bluefield, your academic advisor will be a professor in your major. This means that you are seeing your advisor on a regular basis (in class). You are also required to speak to your advisor before signing up for classes. This means that you are in constant communication with your advisor. You are able to talk about what you want to do when you graduate, where you want to intern, and where you want to go to graduate school (if that is the path that you choose). Our size allows our professors and students to have the kind of one on one interaction that you might not find at a larger institution. This will prove to be especially beneficial as you start looking for jobs, internships, and grad school. For all of these things, you will need recommendations. The relationships that you will build throughout your time in the small class sizes at Bluefield College will allow you to get personalized and detailed recommendations from your professors.

Come to various Bluefield College sporting events and you’ll see students on the sidelines. Not all of these students are athletes or on the team of the sport being played. You’ll see that a number of them are Exercise and Sport Science majors, getting real life experience on the sidelines of our athletic events, training in the field of study. If you’re looking for a place that you can become involved, be more than a number, and find your potential in the field of Exercise and Sport Science, then Bluefield College may be the place for you.
