Do you have a vibrant social personality that drives you to help people? Are habits like eating well or working out a priority for you? Does motivating, teaching, and being a catalyst for behavioral change in the health and lifestyles of others interest you? If so, a PLNU degree in exercise and sport science can lead to a very fulfilling and worthwhile career.
Pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Exercise and Sport Science isn’t simply lifting heavy weights or being able to run fast — it's about working with people to overcome their fears; identify and prevent injuries; help them avoid preventable disease; and live out a healthy, happy lifestyle. From biomechanics and anatomy to physiology or psychology, expect to find yourself gaining important skills in fitness assessment, exercise prescription, proper nutrition for fueling performance, and ethical/faithful leadership in this fast-growing discipline.
PLNU exercise and sport science majors are also required to complete concentrations in either fitness professional or physical education and sport performance, which aim to engage students in topics around the health and fitness industry, strength and conditioning, nutrition, learning theory, physical education, coaching, and many more conversations.
