Clayton State’s Health and Fitness management program first in state to receive NSCA recognition, COAES accreditation
Clayton State University’s Health and Fitness Management program is the first in the state to obtain recognition from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, as well as accreditation in exercise science under the Committee on Accreditation for the Exercise Sciences.
“This accreditation is the recognition of excellence in exercise science knowledge, skills and abilities for our students,” says Dr. Mélanie Poudevigne, director and professor of Health & Fitness Management. “It shows that this curriculum prepares students to excel on the job market in exercise sciences and are fully ready to make significant contributions to any team in allied health professions dealing with exercise sciences.”
With these designations, the degree program is recognized for its commitment to preparing students who seek careers in the health, fitness and exercise industries.
“Earning this national recognition means placing Clayton State University as a national leader in exercise sciences,” Poudevigne says. “We take great pride in having recruited the best faculty to achieve this goal with highly competitive national searches.”
