Kinesiology and Sports Studies Department

The department of Kinesiology and Sports Studies at Eastern Illinois University strives to become students' first choice when deciding where to earn a degree in the areas of pedagogy, exercise science, athletic training, or sport management. KSS faculty will empower students to become responsible and contributing members of a healthy and active community. We will broaden their perspectives, enrich their awareness, and prepare them for meaningful careers within a global society.

Department's Highlights

INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCES

Over 100 students in the athletic training, exercise science, and sport management programs are completing internships this summer! The locations and scope of experience for these students is extremely varied and includes fitness facilities, hospitals and rehabilitation clinics, high schools, colleges, and sports teams. Local internships include The Body Club, Hutti Chiropractic Center, EIU Athletics, Sarah Busch Lincoln Health Center, Charleston Parks and Recreation, Gowin Parc, and Palm Terrace of Mattoon. Internships with sports teams are numerous also, including the Chicago Bandits, Chicago Fire, DuPage County Hounds, Gary Indiana Railcats, Jacksonville Jaguars, Joliet Slammers, Normal Cornbelters, Rockford Aviators, Schaumburg Boomers, Windy City Thunderbolts, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, and San Francisco 49ers. All of these students are taking the knowledge they have learned in our classrooms and putting it to use in their internship site, while gaining valuable real-world experience.
