The School of Sport and Exercise Science (SES) has a long and distinguished history of preparing individuals to assume leadership roles in sport and physical activity settings.
SES is concerned with the many aspects of human movement and its application to sport management, physical activity, and the quality of life. Within SES students have the opportunity to study in one of several focused areas of human movement including physiological and biomechanical aspects of exercise, psychological and sociological aspects of physical activity, traditional and outdoor physical education, as well as the marketing and management of sport. Our degree programs prepare students to compete successfully for careers in the allied health industries, public school systems, and sport management positions. The University of Northern Colorado prides itself on being Colorado's flagship institution for the preparation of Physical Education teachers.
