Promoting healthy and active lifestyles
Our Exercise & Wellness programs will provide you with the knowledge and skills to lead youth, adults, and seniors to be more active and healthy.
Diploma or degree, your choice
Camosun offers both a two-year diploma and a four-year degree in Exercise & Wellness. Both programs focus on fitness promotion, exercise management, personal training and nutrition. The degree also includes studies in exercise prescription, chronic disease management and pathophysiology.
The Exercise & Wellness Diploma offers an optional four- or eight-month internship, and the degree requires a 100 or 300 hour internship. An internship is a paid work experience approved and monitored by the college. You'll have a chance to put your skills to work and gain valuable insight and experience.
Is Exercise & Wellness right for you?
Graduates of the Exercise & Wellness programs gain relevant certifications and work with diverse populations to facilitate change, both in the lives of individuals and within communities. If you're committed to living and promoting an active and healthy lifestyle, and want to make a difference, Exercise & Wellness may be your path to a fulfilling career.
Exercise & Wellness Access is a four-month program, offered every January, to help you meet the admission requirements for the Exercise & Wellness Diploma and Degree programs.
