Experiential Learning with Instructor Carrie Rowell

In an effort to integrate experiential learning into the Health Fitness Specialist (HFS) curriculum, instructor Carrie Rowell makes sure that her students get real-life experience at a variety of venues in the Twin Cities. Not only does this give Globe University/Minnesota School of Business students the opportunity to network, but it also allows them to experience the myriad career opportunities that exist in terms of health, wellness, sport, and training in their own community.
