Opportunities With a Degree in Exercise and Sport Science

With an average class size of 15 and a student to teacher ratio of 14:1, Bluefield College offers a unique experience to its students, allowing them to have a lot of one-on-one interaction with their professors. During their Junior and Senior years, students will be applying for jobs, internships, and grad schools. For each of these things, recommendations will be needed. In smaller classes, students and professors know each other well and those professors are able to write personal recommendations that can benefit the student when applying for either grad school, jobs, or internships.
