Explore wellness through exercise science. Wellness is no longer a health trend or fad — it has become a lifestyle. In order to teach people how to manage stress, maintain a healthy diet, stay physically fit and cope with general health problems, professional wellness programs must be instituted. Exercise science prepares professionals to promote and manage positive, healthy lifestyles.
Our program is designed to provide trained personnel capable of conducting adult physical fitness testing, cardiac rehabilitation principles and procedures, and developing personal fitness training programs that involve exercise and physical activity. Professionals often work for corporate, educational, industrial, medical and recreational settings.
This concentration is interdisciplinary and includes courses from chemistry, communication, psychology, sport science and other related areas.
