    The human performance and fitness curriculum is designed to prepare students for positions in fitness, wellness, and health promotion programs in corporate, business, resort, or community settings. The program includes the study of physical activity, program implementations, and behavioral and health sciences. Students are encouraged to select an additional area of study such as business, nutrition, psychology or gerontology. Contact your advisor at Williston State College to determine curriculum for the first two years.

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Human Performances & Fitness.
