If you have a passion for healthy living and physical activity, why not promote public wellness and physical education by training to be a coach, teacher, personal trainer, health facility manager, or recreation director. Or you can prepare for graduate study in physical or occupational therapy, exercise physiology, or sports medicine. Small class sizes mean lots of hands-on, active learning with professors who take a personal interest in their students’ well being and success.
