Exercise and wellness aren't just areas of study — they're a way of life! As a health and sport science major at the University of Dayton, you'll prepare for a career related to wellness, physical activity, sports or physical therapy while learning how to build healthy communities through research, teamwork and critical reflection.

With class sizes ranging from 20 to 30 students, we are dedicated to creating interactive learning environments with personalized instruction and individual attention. Our faculty combine expertise and varied areas of special interests to provide students with advanced research and publication opportunities and individualized career counseling.

Essential to your curriculum — and your development — you'll also engage with your community, interact with others and gain professional expertise through valuable real-world, hands-on experiences with professionals in the field.

Whichever major you choose in the Department of Health & Sport Science, valuable real-world experiences are part of the curriculum.
