Exercise and Wellness degrees provide students with the opportunity to work in a number of fields that promote nutrition, physical activity and disease prevention.  This can include teaching physical fitness, personal training, sports medicine as well as diet and nutrition.

Because of the wide range of possibilities available, graduates can define their careers by their preferences and experience in most cases.  There are numerous tracks students can take that will enable them to work in one of a number of interesting capacitates.

Jobs can be found in schools, hospitals, clinics, fitness centers, and even on sports teams in addition to whole range of other opportunities associated with this type of degree.  Since it encompasses such a broad range of disciplines, students can find many uses with this degree by itself or in conjunction with other degrees such as nutrition, physical therapy, rehabilitation or physical education.

Teaching and coaching are big careers that many graduates enter into, and earning a Master's degree to compliment the undergraduate program can enhance their job prospects as well as  provide higher starting salaries.  A degree in exercise and wellness is also preferred in fitness centers and park districts along with hospitals and rehabilitation facilities.

The most common health and wellness degrees involve physical education and teaching health classes in school.  Students will learn anatomy and physiology as well coaching, training and psychology.  Additionally, courses in teaching, leadership and group management will also be included in many programs.

As the population gets older and a greater emphasis on exercise and diet become more common, the job outlook for graduates is far better than average, and it is expected to grow in excess of 30 percent through 2018, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  This indicates that this area of the labor force will remain stable as it grows.
