WVSU Sports Studies Program Earns National Recognition

INSTITUTE, W.Va.West Virginia State University’s (WVSU) Sports Studies program has again achieved the distinction as the only undergraduate program in West Virginia recognized by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Education Recognition Program (ERP).

“The continual recognition of the WVSU Sports Studies Exercise Science Program by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, demonstrates the full commitment our program and University have towards providing our students with the optimal educational experience needed to gain national certification and be extremely competitive in regards to employment in all areas of the strength and conditioning profession,” said Dr. Aaron Settle, professor and program director of the Bachelor of Science in Sports Studies.

The recognition by the NSCA is good for a three-year period extending through 2019.

The NSCA-ERP recognizes regionally accredited academic institutions for their educational programs that have met, and continue to meet, educational guidelines recommended by the NSCA.

ERP recognitions are good for three years and schools are eligible for renewal following this three-year period. WVSU was initially recognized by the NSCA-ERP in 2010.
