health promotion major

The Health Promotion major, part of the Exercise and Sport Sciences Department, draws on the expertise of faculty in programs across the college, including Biology, Psychology, Math, Sociology and Exercise and Sport Sciences, to create a sharp focus on the knowledge and skills necessary for graduates to compassionately and effectively enable individuals to improve their wellness and take control of their health.
