The Sport and Exercise Science B.S. program offers students the option of two tracks, Coaching and Human Performance, offered at the Orlando campus. The Coaching track is appropriate for students interested in coaching at all levels of competition, in a variety of sports, including strength and conditioning. Students are provided with a combination of course content as well as practical field and laboratory experiences. The Coaching Track includes coursework leading to partial fulfillment of the Athletic Coaching Endorsement. Full eligibility for the endorsement may require additional criteria outlined by the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE). For further information regarding the Athletic Coaching Endorsement, visit http://www.fldoe.org/edcert/ The Human Performance track is appropriate for students interested in pursuing careers in sport science, health promotion, medicine, wellness, sports medicine, and allied health (i.e. physical therapy, occupational therapy, and cardiac rehabilitation). Students who may be continuing on to graduate school in a clinical or medical area should consider pre-requisites for graduate school when choosing certain classes. Students are advised to check the Graduate Program’s website for updated information, as well as the Undergraduate Catalog for appropriate General Education courses.
