Careers in Wellness and Fitness
The sport management studies-wellness and fitness program
is oriented toward professional development, preventative health care
and high-quality fitness education. It has been designed to prepare
students for positions in personal training businesses, health and
fitness clubs, sports medicine clinics, wellness centers, hospitals,
professional sports teams, universities, high schools, and the
military. Many additional opportunities exist within the profession.
Other career areas include fitness clubs, spas, corporate fitness, strength and conditioning coaching, sports promotion, and sports information.
The program follows a cohort model. A cohort is a group of students that starts and finishes the program at the same time. Like classmates in a traditional classroom setting, students work together in each course and become a professional cohort of health and fitness colleagues. Please be advised that this program is offered in an accelerated format, allowing for degree completion in two to three years depending on each individual’s situation.
