The BS degree program in exercise and wellness is designed to equip the next generation of inclusive fitness professionals with the skills to lower the health care burden by using physical activity as a means to prevent and treat chronic conditions and to improve the health and well-being of the global population.
Through a combination of applied exercise science coursework and hands-on laboratory experiences, students gain the practical skills to implement evidence-based exercise programs to work with clients to achieve health and fitness goals, in both clinical and nonclinical settings.
The exercise and wellness graduate is able to apply best practices in exercise prescription and behavior change to help people adopt and maintain healthier habits and combat the ongoing health problems caused by an increase in sedentary lifestyles. Graduates are prepared for nationally accredited, advanced certification in the health and fitness area and for immediate careers in clinical, commercial or public sectors of the fitness industry. They may also transition to graduate programs specializing in fit, sedentary or symptomatic populations.
