University of Michigan undergraduates have a new major on their list of choices, one highly relevant in this age of health, wellness, and physical activity: Health and Fitness.
Health and Fitness is a new major in the School of Kinesiology and is currently on the common application for new undergraduates. The School spent nearly two years refining the new curriculum. The major encompasses two tracks of study: Health and Fitness Leadership (HFL) and Physical Education (PE) with Teacher Certification.
The new HFL program is a research-based curriculum for students aspiring to careers promoting individual and community health and provides students with the coursework and skills necessary to obtain national certifications through groups, such as the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Additionally, the program provides hands-on experiences through a required internship, which can lead to career opportunities in the growing field of health and fitness such as recreation, personal training, corporate wellness, coaching, and health promotion.
