Applied Exercise and Sport Science option allows the student and advisor to work together to develop an individualized academic program integrating studies in exercise science with one or two additional fields. It is designed to prepare students for very specific career goals that are not met by one of the other four options.

Athletic Training students are prepared for certification as athletic trainers, aiding in the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Upon completion of the prerequisites and admission into the program (15-21 students are admitted each year, GPA higher than 2.75 is required), students follow a three-year program of course work and practical experience. This program is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. For application and admission procedures: http://www.hhs.oregonstate.edu/nes/athletic-training-program-0

Fitness and Nutrition prepares graduates for careers requiring leadership in organizing, directing, and managing fitness and wellness programs in corporate, commercial, and clinical settings. This option also prepares students for professional certifications in fitness and conditioning (such as those from ACSM and NSCA) and for graduate study in the field.

Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) serves students seeking careers as physical educators. Graduates are prepared to enter a fifth-year credential program (such as a master's degree with a concentration in Sport Pedagogy) to earn a teaching certificate for grades K-12.

Pre-Therapy and Allied Health option prepares students for admission into professional preparation programs in the following areas: physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, physician assistant and medical school. This option emphasizes classroom, clinical and community experiences. Students who completes this option will be exposed to the clinical aspects of an area of interest under the supervision of a licensed professional via the Allied Health Practicum.

 

Additional Requirements

For PCC courses that transfer to OSU, refer to Transfer Equivalencies above. If you plan to get an AAOT degree, all OSU Baccalaureate Core Requirements will be met by AAOT degree requirements. Be sure to take all other required courses.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
