Wellness Track

Exercise Science graduates who have completed the Wellness Track work with other health care professionals to provide clients with information designed to manage or prevent health issues through physical activity and healthy lifestyle education. Graduates are skilled at evaluating behaviors that impact health, identifying health risk factors, performing fitness assessments, and prescribing exercise programs. The Wellness Track also prepares students for professional certifications in fitness or strength and conditioning (e.g. ACSM and NSCA) and for graduate study in the field. Individuals with an exercise science degree work in a variety of settings such as fitness facilities, hospital wellness centers, cardiac rehab, commercial settings, rehabilitation facilities, and other agencies.
