The Sport and Exercise Science program has been recognized as a National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Education Recognition Program (ERP). The NSCA is an international, non-profit professional organization committed to advancing the strength and conditioning profession.

The NSCA ERP acknowledges undergraduate and graduate sport and exercise science programs with approved strength and conditioning curricula designed to prepare students for the NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer® and NSCA-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist® certifications.

The program is beneficial to our students.

“The NSCA ERP opens up professional opportunities for students and helps identify career paths they can pursue in the future,” said Sport and Exercise Science Assistant Professor Dr. David Fukuda.

Sport and Exercise Science Instructor Dr. Anna Valdes added, “The organization is involved with different fields and opens the door for our students.”

The ERP will provide the program’s students with discounts for the NSCA certification exams, student membership, and NSCA conference registrations as well as providing them opportunities to apply for foundation grants, scholarships, internships, and assistantships.

The College of Education and Human Performance offers undergraduate and graduate programs in Sport and Exercise Science. View the Sport and Exercise Science website to learn more.
