The Wellness and Adventure Education program educate students to provide and manage fitness and health promotion programs as well as includes introductory coursework related to physical education and health education. Students who wish to work with children in kindergarten through 12th grade, should select the Teacher Education Track. This is the first of two programs which prepares students to become coaches and eligible for certification as physical education and health education teachers (see the Master’s Degree in Education which completes this preparation). Students who wish to work with adults should select the Corporate Wellness Track which will prepare students to become personal trainers and apply physical and health promotion strategies in businesses and organizations. Students will be taught a range of methods by which health promotion can be achieved. In particular, this program emphasizes adventure education. Adventure education involves structured learning exercises characterized by perceived risk or challenge (including low and high ropes courses) and reflection. Students in the Teacher Education and Corporate Wellness Tracks participate in some or all of the adventure education courses to develop the skills needed to create meaningful, effective, and safe learning experiences. Please note that the Teacher Education track requires moderate physical activity including running, jumping, climbing, and tumbling. All students are required to meet the departmental code of professional conduct (see program website for details).
