OLLU's Kinesiology program prepares students to work with individuals at all stages of life from young children to older adults. The program also prepares students for entrance into graduate programs in Kinesiology or clinical fields such as Physical Therapy or Occupational Therapy. The program is also popular among students who are interested in careers in coaching, physical therapy, health and fitness management and personal training.
Many undergraduates take part in the Senior Experience course, which allows them to earn credit while participating in an internship related to their career goals. Student internships have included work at physical and occupational therapy clinics, coaching positions in schools and community agencies and training assistant positions with sports performance companies.
