Officially recognized by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the two-year major prepares graduates for a variety of rewarding careers and enhances their academic preparation for advanced degrees. "Throughout being here, I've learned so much hands-on experience, knowledge. Definitely gives me that experience I need to learn and know, especially when I take it into effect after college," Austin says in a video added to the college's YouTube channel
