California University of Pennsylvania
The Wellness and Fitness track offered by California University of Pennsylvania in their Master of Science in Exercise Science and Health Promotion program is designed for those fitness professionals who are interested in learning more about training programs for the more general population.
This program is designed to be completed in a 12 consecutive month period. Students will begin the program in either January or July and take two or three courses per semester. Some core courses students will take include Leadership and Professional development, Business and Entrepreneurship in the Fitness Industry, and Essentials of Human Movement Science. Core classes will be three credits each, and 18 credit hours total, while the four classes designed for this particular track will be 12 credits.
When students complete this program, they are ready to take the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) certification. Successful completion of this certification states that the holder may design specialized programs in a way that will help clients achieve their health, fitness, and performance goals.
Students will graduate the Wellness and Fitness program with the same 30 individuals with which they started the program. This way, learning is better facilitated through familiarity. Through online discussion, course work, chat rooms, and email, students will learn on a variety of levels with help from faculty and peers. Students are also expected to put new knowledge from the virtual classroom to use in their current job. Cal U states that students should use their existing place of employment as a working laboratory to better prepare themselves.
