The Department of Exercise and Sport Science offers three separate degree programs in areas related to fitness, wellness, education, rehabilitation, maximization of performance, and management. The broad areas of sport, fitness, and sport-related health care provide many career opportunities. Each degree plan offers various choices for an area of specialization. These plans allow students in the program to gain more in-depth study and preparation for their chosen career paths. Another distinctive aspect of the courses offered in the degree programs is the intentional focus on seeking biblically based wisdom and discernment as it applies to each academic application. Each degree program requires an internship and field experience, providing students with “real world” experience and networking opportunities.  Some of the department’s degree programs even lead to certification or direct admittance to graduate programs.
