Trinity’s new Bachelor of Science in Health Science has two tracks: pre-physical therapy and health and fitness. The health and fitness track prepares students for careers as coaches or fitness trainers in the wellness, lifestyle and fitness arenas. Students interested in careers as physical therapists or in other areas of rehabilitation services will also find this degree useful. This degree will officially launch in Fall 2012, however, courses are being offered in Term 2 (starting next month) for students who want to explore health science as an elective or potential program.
