The Associate of General Studies (AGS) in Exercise Science Health Promotion is designed for students who want to transfer to CSU-Pueblo to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the areas of Exercise Science, health promotion, recreation and athletic training. The Pueblo Community College curriculum provides a transferable foundation for all Exercise Science Health Promotion majors. Exercise Science Health Promotion is the science and art of helping people evaluate their lifestyle to move toward a state of optimal health. We define optimal health as a balance of physical, emotional, career, social, spiritual and intellectual health. Lifestyle change can be facilitated through a combination of efforts to enhance awareness, change behavior, and create environments that support health practices. Giving Pueblo Community College students the opportunity to earn a two-year degree in health promotion will prepare them for a transfer degree to CSU-Pueblo and careers in a wide variety of allied health fields.
