Career Opportunities

Most majors in Health and Exercise Science pursue careers as health professionals, including allopathic and osteopathic medicine, dentistry, optometry, physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, and pharmacy.  Other interests are in public health, nutrition, exercise science, health research, corporate fitness, medical sales, and personal training.  You can read about many of these and other specific careers at http://www.naahp.org.   

Professional and graduate schools in these areas routinely require additional biological and social science courses outside the Health and Exercise Science Department.  The specific requirements for these programs vary depending on the program and the school.  Additional information for pursuing postgraduate degrees can be found at the Pre-Health Professions Program website http://college.wfu.edu/prehealth/.
