Health and Sports Science, Option 1

“As a Ranger I have learned so much through the Health and Sports Science Department at NWOSU.  The facility members are enthusiastic, approachable, and caring. The willingness of the professors to do anything to watch you succeed, helped me choose my desired degree path of Health and Sports Science Option 1. The small class sizes make a great atmosphere for hands-on learning and getting to know your professors on a personal level. This helped me tremendously throughout my academic career. The Health and Sports Science Department at NWOSU has helped me prepare for my future of becoming a Physical Therapist.”

“As a student who has transferred to Northwestern, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Coming from a larger university and transitioning to smaller class sizes has been a wonderful experience. You are able to fully connect with the instructors and get to know them on a personal level. The Health and Sports Science department has also been a tremendous help in assuring that I am prepared to continue my education and pursue physical therapy.”

The passion they exude is contagious and motivational towards my development in my future career. They helped develop an appreciation and true passion in me for this field of work that not even I knew existed. The program provides many opportunities for us to be in real classroom settings, which are the most effective and beneficial experiences that we as future educators can receive.

It has caused me to feel confident that I am more than equipped with the skills to excel in my future career as an educator.”
