human performance Mission

Both undergraduate and graduate students engaged in study of the Exercise Sciences will strive to accomplish:

human performance specialization

This 122-credit specialization in human performance is a non-teaching Bachelor of Science option for Exercise Science majors. The curriculum provides students with an understanding of the exercise sciences which include physiology of exercise, kinesiology, sports medicine, nutrition and exercise, and psychology of sport. The required six-credit internship provides the student an opportunity to apply scientific course work principles in an exercise/fitness/rehabilitation/ strength and conditioning setting. Human performance graduates are prepared for employment in the physical fitness industry. Such occupational opportunities include adult fitness in a corporate, community, commercial, or rehabilitation setting; youth fitness in public and private agencies; and special population fitness for infants, the elderly, various clinical populations and physically and emotionally handicapped individuals.
