Our courses are led by a dynamic group of faculty who are experts in their respective fields, bringing a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to the classroom. Our courses will challenge you to think critically about how the intracacies of human physiology, health behaviors, sports science and public health contribute to our rapidly evolving world. In addition to their commitment to teaching, our faculty strive to help students make connections beyond the classroom. Some of these experiential learning opportunities include internships, study abroad experiences, and mentored research with faculty members. 

Our graduates leverage their undergraduate degree and experiences when securing employment immediately following graduation and when advancing their knowledge, skills, and professional credentials through graduate degree programs.
