Internship Opportunities

All Health & Human Performance (HHP) degrees require hands-on internships for graduation. The HHP faculty are committed to helping students acquire personalized internships to most qualify them for their individual professional pursuits. HHP has teamed up with Intermountain Health Care (IHC) to provide opportunities in a health care setting. The department also has connections to the local school system to help physical education students get their teaching experience. Other internships in athletic training, recreation management, and fitness training are available in the university and community settings.
