"Research I conducted as a graduate student at U.D. was a springboard for further academic and research training. My experience at the University of Dayton primed me for a life-long passion to learn!"
--Matthew J. Peterson, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Division of Community Health, Boonshoft School of Medicine, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio
Exercise and wellness are not just areas of study; they are a way of life. Health and sport science majors prepare to be proficient and professional in a vocation related to wellness, physical activity, sports and physical therapy. At the University of Dayton, the study of health and sport science is about building communities through critical reflection. Because our areas of expertise require professionals to interact with others -- and perhaps profoundly affect their lives -- valuable real-world experiences are part of the curriculum.
