Master of Science in Exercise Science and Health Promotion: Wellness Coaching Curriculum

This 36-credit Master of Science degree program, with the major being Exercise Science and Health Promotion, offers a unique concentration in Wellness Coaching.  The concentration was developed in concert with Wellcoaches®, a premier provider of Wellness Coaching education. Wellcoaches® is a well-established, international education provider with a rich and respected history in Wellness Coach Training.  This concentration provides students the opportunity to become a Certified Health and Wellness Coach, the foundation for a career in Wellness Coaching.  The Health and Wellness Coach Certification is endorsed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).

The Wellness Coaching concentration is offered in a 100% online format, as are the other concentrations of the Exercise Science and Health Promotion program.  A subtle difference does exist within the Wellness Coaching concentration though as students will be required in two courses (PRF 714 and PRF 754) to participate in a synchronous component via the telephone.  Wellcoaches® provides education the world over and is able to manage different time zones and associated matters.  These phone meetings will take place on a weekly basis throughout the semester.  In the event a student is unable to attend one of the weekly sessions, the sessions will be archived for future use.  All students will have continued access to the archived sessions as well.
