The Curriculum plan reflects changes implemented in the 2016-17 catalog year
The Community Health and Wellness Concentration curriculum promotes the acquisition of skills and competencies needed to assist individuals and groups to make informed decisions concerning individual, family, and community health. Graduates of the major may be eligible to take the National Commission for Health Education, Inc. Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) Examination following graduation.
The Health and Fitness Concentration curriculum prepares students to have careers in athletics, health care, fitness training, and much more. Students examine the effects of exercise and physical activity and how to promote healthy living through exercise and other behaviors.
The Pre-PT/Health Science Concentration curriculum is designed to meet the prerequisite requirements of students pursuing acceptance into Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) programs and also meet the requirements for a range of career paths. The Physical Therapy pathway allows students build a foundation and learn skills in the field of rehabilitation medicine and decide which career—in physical or occupational therapy, or athletic training—is most appropriate for them.
