Teaching Area(s): Exercise Science

I could list the typical clichés about what makes Mount Union unique, but I truly believe that what makes it unique cannot be put into words. It is just a unique feeling one has when they are part of Mount Union. 


Students who choose an exercise science major at the University of Mount Union have ample opportunities to get “real-world” kinesiology experience outside of the classroom. By getting involved in these experiential and clinical field opportunities, you can strengthen your skills in prevention, diagnosis, immediate care and rehabilitation of athletic-related injuries and illnesses. This hands-on experience is given through a number of Individualized Direct Experiences (IDEs), which provide structured opportunities for students to work with a multitude of various populations, depending on their area of interest. A few examples of IDE courses are Adult Exercise, Healthy Campus and Sport Coach.
