Health and Physical Education/Fitness, General

Majoring in health and physical education is a great opportunity for students passionate about fitness. Our physical well being affects dozens of aspects of our daily lives, which is why so many people find helping others stay healthy is such a rewarding career. Health and physical education majors take classes that focus on fitness principles, anatomy and movement, injury prevention, motivation studies, and nutrition. Some schools even offer coursework on the history and rules of certain sports. Many graduates find themselves working as athletic trainers, coaches, scouts, or health educators. Others find work with government health agencies, public health agencies, or rehabilitation facilities. While a bachelor's degree is required for most jobs, a graduate degree can open up additional career opportunities.
