Our mission is to promote the University’s commitment to core values of excellence, student-centeredness, learning, community and civic engagement, and diversity. We are committed to mentoring and educating our students to become informed, responsible and productive citizens of an increasingly diverse and interdisciplinary society.
Our department offers professional programs that meet national standards of excellence and lead to three Bachelor of Science degrees: Community Health, Exercise Science and Physical Education, and four tailored minors: Athletic Coaching, Exercise Science, Health, and Outdoor Education Leadership. We will welcome our first cohort of graduate students in our newly launched Master of Athletic Training Program in Summer, 2016.
Our faculty are among a diverse community of scholars with research interests that span the fields of health and professional studies. We are housed in Maggs Physical Activity Center and Teacher Education and Technology Center at Salisbury University.
We encourage you to explore our site and become acquainted with our programs, faculty, staff, and student interests.
