Future Students

Translational Health

The Translational HealthApplied Health degree is a new program that started in the fall of 2015. It offers students the opportunity to study health and wellness in one-on-one interactions with Exercise Physiology and Nutrition faculty members. 

Program Overview

Students in the Translation Health program will be able to choose either an Applied Nutrition track or an Exercise Physiology track. The overall goal of the program is to prepare students for graduate or professional study. Students are required to take eight tutorials (two of which are devoted to a thesis). These tutorials include experience with basic and applied research, clinical experience, and general health and wellness with the assistance of faculty. Students will also complete the Diabetes Certificate through Ohio University. 

Opportunities Upon Graduation

Successful graduates of the program are highly competitive applicants for graduate school or professional school (physical therapy, occupational therapy, exercise physiology and metabolism, nutrition and dietetics, kinesiology, community and applied health, physician's assistant, etc.)


Students are selected by the College and the Director of Studies for the Translational Health program. Strong standardized test scores (30 composite on the ACT or equivalent score on the SAT), a high school class ranking in the top 10%, and an interview with the Director of Studies of the program all factor in to determine acceptance.
