Message From the Director

Welcome to the Health Sciences Division!

Welcome to Saint Xavier University’s College of Nursing, Health Sciences and Business (CNHSB)! We are so honored that you chose us for your health sciences education.

The Health Sciences Division truly embodies the Mercy mission through its curriculum. We will teach you how to think critically, communicate with others effectively, and be compassionate when working with other students, the community and in your career setting. Our eight core values are woven within each course you take within your majors. These values are critical in making your chosen career happy and successful.

The Health Sciences Division holds two majors, one in exercise science and the other in sports fitness administration. We also hold the physical education minor and our graduate program in exercise science. Within these majors, you can pursue careers in various allied health areas, including strength and conditioning, personal training, director positions and fitness sales. These majors also allow you to pursue graduate or terminal degrees in allied health, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, strength and conditioning, human performance, nutrition and sports science.

We are genuinely proud of each student who has utilized our programs to pursue their education and career. We look forward to you being one of those students striving to be an outstanding practitioner serving others when you leave SXU and your chosen career.

We look forward to seeing you on campus and within our classrooms. Welcome to the Health Sciences programs at Saint Xavier University!

Go Cougars!
