Exercise & Wellness

What You’ll Learn

The science of health

In our Exercise & Wellness programs, you'll gain knowledge and expertise in sport and fitness, and learn how to prescribe exercise programs for people at all stages of life and health.

What to expect

The Exercise & Wellness programs are located at the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence on the Interurban campus. The diploma program consists of Year 1 and Year 2, while the Bachelor's degree program adds a third and fourth year of study. Use this Personal Learning Plan to help you track your courses throughout your program.

Still in high school?

We have dual-credit courses available here at Camosun through South Island Partnership.

Year 1

You'll cover the basics of human anatomy, psychology, biomechanics, physiology, fitness health and principles. You'll also gain competency in a variety of activities and sports.

Year 2

You'll focus on fitness and health assessment and the design of exercise prescriptions. You'll have the option of doing an internship. By the end of this year, you may graduate with your Diploma and/or continue your studies. You'll be eligible to write the CSEP Certified Personal Trainer exam.

Year 3

In third year, you'll look more closely at the workings of the human body and how to adapt fitness programs to accommodate injury and disease. You'll also learn about business and logistical aspects of your upcoming career.

Year 4

You'll put your skills into practice through a work experience or internship. You'll continue your studies of human biology, pathology and sport, and come out ready to write the CSEP Clinical Exercise Physiologist exam and graduate with your Degree.
