With a solid foundation in health, science, nutrition, and psychology, our Health Promotion and Performance program will give you the edge you’ll need to compete for employment opportunities in the community and public wellness programs or pursue graduate training.
The sport, health, and fitness industries are a microcosm of society, and nowhere is this more present in our teaching than at Judson University’s Exercise & Sport Science Department. We use real-life examples and adhere to an ethical approach of a Christian University within our curriculum.
Why Health Promotion and Performance at Judson?
Customize your degree
In their time within our program, many of our students have time to pursue a minor alongside their Exercise Sports Science degree. Many students also take additional elective courses that cater to more specific areas within the field they may be interested in, truly customizing their learning experience. Our health promotion and performance curriculum has been newly revised and is data-driven allowing courses taken to align with core competencies that are highly marketable and desired by employers.
In a culture as sports-centered as the Chicagoland area, bountiful credit internship opportunities near campus allow our students to capstone their undergraduate experience with a valuable practicum. Additionally, our Exercise Sport Science Department’s “internship pipeline” will provide you with a seamless route from the classroom to your career path. Our program supports learning avenues in physical therapy, occupational therapy, kinesiology, community health, and more.
