My question is in relation to obtaining a degree in sports science, sports nutrition or a course similar. I currently have a diploma in fitness instruction and an extended course in certified personal training. My leaving cert points were 425 and I am currently working full time in a gym and I might have the opportunity to manage soon.
Is there any courses that you know of that will provide a degree on a part time basis, or full time but quicker than the average due to my previous qualifications in a related field of practice?
im going to be a junior in HS next year and there are so many extra classes im interested in taking
2 of them are criminal justice and forensic science and the others are psychology, nutrition and sports science and marine biology
i love shows like CSI..i dont want to become a CSI because even though i dont mind gory dead bodies on tv in real life i wont be able to handle it…and i dont want to be a cop.
with the classes i want to take what are some good careers?
I am just starting a debate, not taking sides.
But I had this conversation last night and I would like your input.
With all the advancements in on and off ice training, the increase in size of athletes in general, nutrition, equipment, sophisticated systems play, rule changes, etc. It can easily be argued that today’s athletes have a distinct advantage over those of years past and therefore should be the best overall athletes in the history of the game.
Even with the NHL talent level diluted to the degree that it is now, do you believe that these advancements have increased the ability of players to be better than ever?
Or is the fact that records aren’t being shattered right and left just magnify how diluted the talent really is considering these advantages?
I see Bob Harper from the biggest loser just has certifications like personal training,nutrition and group fitness.Can I be real successful with only certifications or do I need to go as far to get my bachelors in exercise science? If I get the degree would I be paid more? and would it give me more employment oppurtunities? Seems like you study the same stuff in school as you would for the certifications.
I have two choices to make soon. A certificate with a B.S. degree in Nutritional Science with concentration (Dietetics or Food Packaging) will take me a bit longer for me to finish college.
A cert. with a B.S. degree in Nut. Science WITHOUT concentration but just emphasis (Sports Nutrition, Food Management) will save me time, I take less courses and I can finish college faster. I checked and both degrees are quite similar, offer almost identical jobs, but the one with the “concentration” sounds a tad bit better. Is the difference between the two titles (WITH CONCENTRATION and WITHOUT CONCENTRATION) significant to my rate in finding a job?? I’m not entirely looking for short cuts, I just want to be smart about it!!!
I’ll go to a counselor soon enough so don’t say “Go to your counselor/ adviser.
I want you Yahooligans to help me.
10 points to the awesome person if you can answer precisely =D
I have my BA in sports sciences, with an emphasis in sports medicine. I took all the science classes along with the pre-med, pre-dent, and pre-pharm students in my school, including 2 semesters of core biology, anatomy, physiology, chemistry, kinesiology, and pharmacology. I also took a semester of education courses. Now that I have graduated, I decided not to apply to PT school and would like to get my teaching credential. I’m sure I could teach PE, but I would also like to teach in a classroom, perhaps a nutrition or health class. Would I have to get a second BA in order to do this?
I have the option of choosing only 2 of the below along with the core Management modules:
Nutrition (Lab based)
Disabilities and Injuries (Palpation/Practical)
Anatomy and Physiology (Lab based)
Sports Psychology (Clinical/Practical)
I am interested in becoming either a PE Teacher or Community Sports Development officer, which would be more beneficial qualifications..?
Is Science And The Evolution Of Technology Helping The World Of Sport Or Making It Loose Its Spirit?
I know looking back when TVs were black and white (metaphorically speaking), sporting legends such as Babe Ruth worked hard to play, the fields then were larger and pitch was bigger, where as today everything seems to be a lot easier for the “elite athlete”. I guess what I’m trying to say is, has science and the evolution of technology help with sport, making the elite ‘Athletes’ sport performance and ability improve. where Advances in diet, sports coaching,training methods and sports medicine has had very little impact in relation.
