Missouri Western students interested pursuing careers in Health and Fitness can select from two options which provide targeted skill development and maximize employability. Students interested in pursuing careers in sports medicine (pre-physical therapy, pre-athletic training, pre-chiropractic, etc.) and clinical settings can prepare for graduate school and complete many standard pre-requisite courses by selecting the Health and Exercise Science concentration. Students seeking to pursue careers in fitness related settings can develop skills in both exercise programming and fitness management by pursuing the Personal and Commercial Fitness concentration.
