Are you passionate about fitness? Do you want to help others stay or become fit regardless of their current physical state or disability? By earning Liberty University’s Master of Science in Human Performance with a focus in fitness and wellness, you can enhance your career opportunities in the health, wellness, and human performance fields while enhancing other’s lives as you help them lead a richer, fitter life. You have the opportunity to complete this master’s degree in a traditional two-year format or a one-year accelerated format. Our course material is based on concepts from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

Throughout this degree, you will increase your understanding of exercise science by taking advanced classes in exercise physiology and biomechanical analysis. You will learn to help athletes be their best and overcome disabilities and other physical limitations. Additionally, you will learn how to work with patients, clients, and your community to address the health and wellness needs of individuals. By working one-on-one with professors and experts in the field, you’ll learn how to accurately assess the health of your client through tests and consultation and then prescribe a proper exercise routine.
