Health studies students (Community Health, Exercise Science, Health Science) are required to do extensive field work and internships, supervised over hundreds of hours by our faculty. Students have been placed in organizations such as the American Cancer Association, Coalition Against Child Abuse and Neglect, the Veterans Affairs Hospitals and most of our area hospitals, to name a few organizations.
While internships are a critical part of preparing for life after college, its also important to have facilities that allow students to learn experientially. Check out how the Martin B. Greenberg Trading Room, one of the nation's largest simulated trading rooms, does just that. In the Drama and Dance department, find out how upperclassmen have the opportunity to apply for Activity Grants, which provide them with funding to be active in departmental productions and performances.
The Center for Public Archaeology encourages students to get involved in local digs, including a multi-year excavation in Lloyd Harbor, New York, to understand the lives of slaves in the late eighteenth century. The Center for Civic Engagement has a variety of student internships and classroom activities to learn about community service, activism, advocacy and civics. See how the cutting-edge NewsHub and the award-winning community news radio station WRHU give our students hands on experience. Check out the variety of TV broadcasts and films School of Communication students produce in the Student Work section.
