Physical Activity Program Description
The new Area of Concentration (AOC) in Physical activity within the existing Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) will prepare students for careers that involve integrating physical activity into public health practice at various levels. Graduates will be able to design, implement and evaluate physical activity interventions in a variety of populations and community settings. They will also be able to evaluate the impact of physical activity and sedentary behavior at the community level. The goal of the program is to allow graduates to effectively collaborate with public health professionals at the local and federal levels to promote physical activity research, practice and policy.
