Health Sciences Programs

Our health science programs are each accredited by their respective accrediting bodies, and graduates’ performances on certification examinations are above national averages for all programs. Each program combines knowledge gained from textbooks and lectures with hands-on experience using state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Students begin their clinical experience early in their course of study, which allows them to apply classroom theory in the clinical setting.

Athletic Training

Athletic Training is an allied health field recognized by the American Medical Association. Certified Athletic Trainers specialize in the prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries caused by physical activity.

Exercise & Sports Science majors use their degree as preparation for professional study in medicine, cardiac rehabilitation, physical therapy and other health-care professions. They also use it as a foundation for careers in commercial fitness centers or corporate wellness programs, as well as professions as personal trainers or strength and conditioning coaches.
