Health & Physical Education (Area of Study)
There are a wide variety of career opportunities available with a degree in Health and/or Physical Education. Students may seek jobs in fitness training, fitness center management, coaching, wellness promotion, preventative health care, or nutrition, for example. Advanced degrees would prepare students for careers in sports medicine, athletic training, sports psychology, health education, physical education, physical therapy, biomechanics/kinesiology and integrative medicine. Qualified applicants usually have a strong science background with exemplary communication skills.

Students interested in careers in any of these fields may wish to see a member of the Health and Physical Education (HPE) Division for advising at the earliest possible time in their academic pursuits. It is important for students to make a decision about which four-year institution they will attend in order to expedite their college experience.
