Health and Sport Science

Majors:


The undergraduate mission of the Department of Health and Sport Science is to prepare students to be proficient and professional in the disciplines of dietetics, exercise physiology, exercise science, pre-physical therapy, and sport management.

The Dietetics Program prepares students for post-baccalaureate dietetic internships or preprofessional practice programs.

Exercise Physiology students prepare to pursue research careers in exercise science, medicine or health.

The Exercise Science Program is designed to prepare students for professional opportunities in corporate fitness, wellness, and health maintenance programs in a variety of settings.

The Pre-Physical Therapy Program will prepare students for graduate school in physical therapy and other allied health professions.

The Sport Management Program prepares students for professional opportunities in Division I and professional sports, sports organizations/federations, newspapers, television, sporting goods, and the many areas of recreation.

Along with minimum ACT/SAT scores, minimum cumulative GPAs are required for students wishing to transfer into the department.


Faculty

Corinne Daprano, Chairperson
Professors Emeriti: Drees, Laubach, Leonard, Roberts, Schleppi, Siciliano
Professor: Titlebaum
Associate Professors: Daprano, DeMarco, Linderman
Assistant Professors: Crecelius, Cuy Castellanos
Lecturers: Dalton, Gallo, Ritterhoff

Bachelor of Science in Education, Dietetics (EHA) minimum 123 hours

This program, which leads to a Bachelor of Science degree, prepares students who wish to become registered dietitians. It has a strong science component.

During the last semester of their senior year, students make application to a dietetic internship program. These post-baccalaureate programs are usually eight to eleven months in length and will qualify the student to sit for examination to become registered dieticians. Acceptance into the internship program is highly competitive and is based on the student's grades, work experience, recommendation letters, and extra curricular activities. Selection is made through computer matching.

Costs of the didactic program in dietetics may also include laboratory fees, the purchase of a lab coat, and membership fees for the Student Dietetic Association and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. No liability insurance is needed since the students in this program do not participate in a practice setting.

The didactic program in dietetics is currently granted initial accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE), Suite 2000, 120 South Riverside Plaza, Chicago, Illinois 60606, Phone: (900) 877-1600.
