● The creation of a major in Sport and Wellness, with multiple concentrations (Health and Fitness, Community Health, and Sport Management) that correspond to our current offerings and opportunities for growth. 2 The focus of the major in Sport and Wellness , with its multiple concentrations: Health and Fitness, Community Health, and Sport Management will be to build upon the Common Academic Program to create graduates who can:
