Overview

This Health and Exercise Science - Sports Medicine major at Colorado State University  is dedicated to preparing students both professionally and academically for their future careers.

The Sports Medicine concentration provides excellent preparation for those students seeking pre-professional preparation in medical fields, physical therapy or other allied health fields or students planning on pursuing an advanced degree (master's and/or Ph.D.) in exercise science or a related field. 

Some of the courses required for this concentration include chemistry, biology, physics, anatomy, kinesiology, exercise physiology, biomechanical principles and neuromuscular aspects of human movement, and human nutrition. This concentration provides a comprehensive understanding of health and exercise science while preparing students for post-graduate programs.

Potential Occupations

The United States and other developed countries are struggling with an aging and increasingly unhealthy population. Understanding the role of physical activity in preventing and treating disease and maintaining optimal health at any age is critical. Graduates trained in the foundations of human movement such as anatomy, physiology, exercise prescription and health behavior change AND the ability to apply this knowledge to enhance the health, well-being and functional performance of the public, will be in high demand.

We take pride in training students in Health and Exercise Science to be strong critical thinkers who can express themselves clearly in written and oral form, view the world from multiple perspectives and are models of professional behavior and citizenship: qualities that will serve them well in any career they choose to pursue. 

Graduates who choose the Health Promotion concentration also acquire theoretical and hands-on training that makes them competitive for career opportunities in a wide variety of areas including, but not limited to: corporate fitness/wellness, community health/wellness, public health, health behavior change, exercise technicians, cardiac rehabilitation, personal trainers, group exercise/fitness instructors, fitness/ medical equipment sales, and recreation directors. 

In the Sports Medicine concentration, graduates acquire additional course work in areas such as biomechanics, neurophysiology and human nutrition. This training provides excellent preparation for graduate studies in allied health areas and a variety of medical professions.
