A major in Physical Activity and Health will allow you to develop knowledge and understanding of human structure and function to allow safe and effective implementation of exercise and physical activity.
Integrating knowledge from the basic, applied and social sciences you will implement exercise and physical activity with an evidence-based practice approach. The Physical Activity and Health major includes projects drawing on a variety of tools, media and strategies appropriate to facilitate engagement with audiences from different backgrounds and life stages. You will understand physiological responses to acute exercise and training programs and integrate skill acquisition and nutrition knowledge and skills into the broader exercise and physical activity recommendations.
