What careers could I be headed towards?

Hey! My name is Abbey and I’m a first-year student at the University of St.Thomas in St.Paul Minnesota. Throughout my whole life, I've had an interest in sports, health, and the human body. Because of this, I decided to major in Exercise Science and double minor in Nutrition and Business Administration. I was looking at becoming an athletic trainer but decided against it a few months ago. I am really just looking for someone who has some knowledge in these areas, and could tell me a little bit of what I could go into when I'm older that includes my major and minors! And any other insights that I could find helpful in the future!

Which undergrad major would be best suited for a doctorate in physical therapy?

As I've been looking into more colleges for admissions, I've noticed that not all of them have either kinesiology or exercise science. After looking more into it, I can't decide whether exercise sciences or kinesiology would be better suited for my major to help get my doctorate.

Should I choose an obscure major for Physical Therapy school or stick with Exercise Science?

I am going to be a first year undergraduate student in the fall at Pacific University Oregon. The most popular majors are the health sciences and I am planning on majoring in Exercise Science. However, I know it is very difficult to get into Doctor of Physical Therapy school after I graduate and I've heard that majoring in something other than Exercise Science/Kinesiology can make you stand out on your application. I would still earn all of my prerequisites for DPT school but I was thinking in majoring in something else that I'm interested in such as Journalism or Political Science. Should I stick with Exercise Science as my major, or go for something more obscure that will help me stand out during the application process? #physical-therapist #therapy #physical-therapy #physical #exercise-physiology #exercise-science #kinesiology

Is the Demand for Gym Teachers diminishing?

Hi, I'm currently debating on whether to pursue a career in Exercise Sciences and become a Gym Teacher. However upon researching the job some more, some say that the demand for Gym Teachers is vanishing due to change in county's curriculum, apparently Gym class is not even part of some county's curriculum. While other resources say that the demand has increased more than ever because of an increase of obese children. I need some guidance on this before I make a decision on my major and end up not being able to pursue a career I'd like to have. Please Help #teaching #school #exercise #exercise-science

How important is it to build up volunteer hours before attending graduate school with a focus on Physical Therapy and what are some other things I should consider completing before attending?

I am currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in exercise-science but my long term goal is Physical Therapy. I have volunteered at my local hospital for 3 years and enjoyed my time there but I am wondering how important these hours will be once I start to apply to graduate schools. #college #graduate-school #physical-therapist #exercise-science
