The certifications offered by this organization are the gold standard in the field. The curriculum prepares students to pass the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health Fitness Specialist Certification.

Students of the Health Management - Exercise Science program of the Southeast Missouri State University are not taught how to exercise, but rather how to apply the physiological and mechanical principles learned in the classroom to clients of varying health status and fitness levels. One way in which this is done is through an array of experiential learning opportunities. When students complete the exercise science program they have had ample opportunities to apply classroom knowledge and in the laboratory setting and in the field. Faculty monitor the students’ progress along the way.
