The United States and other developed countries are struggling with an aging and increasingly unhealthy population. Understanding the role of physical activity in preventing and treating disease and maintaining optimal health at any age is critical. Graduates trained in the foundations of human movement such as anatomy, physiology, exercise prescription and health behavior change AND the ability to apply this knowledge to enhance the health, well-being and functional performance of the public, will be in high demand.
“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
