BSPH in Fitness & Wellness

Strong academic preparation and engaging, practical experience

As a fitness and wellness major, you'll learn the core disciplines of public health—community health, epidemiology, public health administration, biostatistics, and environmental health—along with specialized courses in areas such as physiology, functional kinesiology, biomechanics, and motor learning. You will practice important skills, such as posture and movement analysis, communication and coaching strategies, and exercise prescription and leadership. Our required professional field experience and the numerous opportunities we provide for you to work at on- and off-campus sites offer you even more hands-on knowledge.

With this degree, you will become qualified to seek certification as an Exercise Physiologist from National Commission of Certifying Agencies (NCCA) accredited organizations such as the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). When you are ready, career office coaches will work with you to create a customized plan for your future.
