Two Departments Focused on Health and Well-Being With Many Undergraduate and Graduate Options

You’ll learn in small classes taught by faculty members dedicated to your success. You’ll have opportunities for hands-on research and field work within the community. You’ll incorporate respect for diversity into any field of health studies. And you’ll build your knowledge as you become a health advocate and leader in the classroom, on the field and in the world.

Health and Sport Sciences

Students should be health advocates in the classroom, on the field and in the world. Focusing on health and the whole person enhances the lives of individuals, families and communities. At Adelphi, we believe physical activity benefits should be available to everyone regardless of background, appearance, belief system or socioeconomic status.

Professors speak to you as a person instead of a number. They want to make sure you really understand the material. This is something I find to be rare and deeply appreciate as it ensures I have the knowledge to accomplish my goals.
