Throughout its history, Cal Poly has emphasized hands-on, career-oriented education, where bridges are regularly made between general principles and practical applications. In keeping with this philosophy, the Kinesiology Department offers a fieldwork program which provides a supervised, professional field experience in a variety of settings appropriate for the students’ interests and career goals. This practical education helps students develop a realistic approach toward securing employment in their chosen profession. These practical experiences provide the essential bridge between theory and practice and/or administration in Kinesiology related areas.
