The proposed area of concentration is designed to serve students who are in good academic standing with the University (2.0+ GPR) and are specifically seeking an interdisciplinary degree plan which provides preparation for further study in fields or careers in coaching high performance athletes and personal training. The focus is on adult performance at collegiate, professional or fitness industry levels. The proposed concentration area is distinguished from existing majors because it would directly be focused on strength and conditioning coaching at the collegiate, professional, and fitness industry level, areas that are not currently served by existing majors on campus. Existing majors prepare students to teach and coach in junior/high school teaching situations, but the collegiate, professional, and adult fitness levels of coaching bring different challenges.
If one-on-one advising is required or to confirm degree audit clearance for graduation, please make an appointment with the advisor.
