WT Legacy: Sports & Exercise Sciences

Sports and Exercise Sciences is a key part of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. SES encompasses all aspects related to human performance, from how the body moves, to how people learn to move their body. Students who want to pursue teaching, coaching, health and wellness, sports management, athletic directing, or other similar careers can find their place here.
