According to the school system, “A trademark of all Seidel School majors is experiential learning. Students gain real-world experience with our partners in multiple settings that include regional professional development schools, social work agencies [and] sports medicine clinics. Course work culminates into semester-long internships in most of our schools to help prepare students for future career challenges. Our schools and students benefit greatly from this collaboration between our two organizations.”
