Health & Exercise Science
In the 1990's, career opportunities in the areas of health, physical education, exercise science, fitness, sports medicine and coaching will continue to be in high demand. Television and other forms of communication have made people more aware of the negative effects of an inactive lifestyle on personal health and wellness. As a result, schools, communities and private corporations are seeking leadership in fitness, exercise, sports and health-related careers.
A student interested in a career in health and physical education should demonstrate an interest in working with individuals who may vary in age from pre-school to senior citizen. Instruction occurs in large group, small group and/or individual settings depending on the specialization. Specific professional opportunities include teaching health and physical education (K-12) in public and private schools; directing adults in corporate, private and recreational fitness programs; coaching school and recreational teams; and working in sports medicine and allied health settings.
Our newest program in sport management prepares students for careers with professional, collegiate, and minor league sport teams as well as sport agency and marketing firms.
