Exercise Science and Leisure Studies (Leisure Studies Concentration) is designed for the student who is interested in attaining entry-level positions in health and fitness related fields. The program of study in Sport and Wellness Studies aims to develop an understanding of the concepts and theories of sport activities, along with health and wellness behaviors of the general public. You will acquire the skill needed to develop and/or assist other health and fitness professionals in publicly or privately owned and operated businesses in the community.
The Leisure Studies major will also complete a supervised field experience. This involves the observation of professionals in the field, as well as a work related experience that places you in an environment where you can experience the day-to-day operations of the profession. Valley City Parks and Recreation and VCSU have provided the setting for the field experience.
