It's an exciting time in the field of Exercise Science and Health Promotion. The documented health benefits of physical activity have made supervised exercise programs, personal training, exercise prescription, and nutrition counseling an integral inclusion of preventive medicine.
Additionally, a classroom and Human Performance laboratory accommodate the academic/practicum requirements for the certification curriculums of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
It is our goal to provide students majoring in Exercise Science and Health Promotion with the academic knowledge and practical experiences necessary to pursue certifications from various national governing organizations in the field.
There are currently more than 80 approved senior internship sites in the region that focus on sports conditioning, wellness, rehabilitation, fitness, physical therapy, children's exercise, and hospital-based fitness.
Exercise Science and Health Promotion majors can choose between tracks: Sports Science or Health Wellness Management. This gives our students the competitive edge for employment upon graduation, and both tracks provide a sound base for students who wish to pursue graduate studies or additional health care degrees.
As with all departments at Cabrini, the majority of classes have only 10-20 students, allowing for concentrated faculty-student interaction and guidance.
