The NSU Human Performance bachelor's degree program will prepare you to work in the field of sports science.
As a human performance and fitness major, you’ll be part of a growing program that will help you build a strong sports science foundation through courses such as anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, and exercise physiology.
Choose from two emphases:
- Health Promotion
- Exercise for Special Populations
You'll also have the unique opportunity to work with professors in our Nora Staael Evert Human Performance Lab, fully equipped to enhance teaching and training in the clinical and applied aspects of exercise physiology and biomechanics!
Students who major in human performance and fitness at Northern can plan for a career as a physical therapist through our pre-physical therapy program! Learn more at Pre-Physical Therapy.
Lab Expansion Planned
Northern's sports science lab will be upgraded in a state-of-the art expansion that will include a motion capture camera system and force plates for biomechanical analysis. Read more!
