Find out what an IU education can do for your mind, your character and your future.
Immaculata has a long tradition of preparing professional leaders in health promotion, nutrition, and exercise science. We combine a strong liberal arts and sciences education with hands-on experience, mentorship, and preparation for in-demand careers in health care services and management, nutrition education, fitness and exercise science, athletic training, physical and occupational therapy, and sports management.
Our programs will help you identify injuries and illness, plan treatment programs, sharpen your problem-solving skills, and educate patients about health and wellness.
We encourage our students to develop research questions, conduct experiments under a faculty member’s guidance, and present their conclusions at research events held on campus or at other local and regional gatherings. Research gives you a more in-depth understanding of your field and provides excellent experience as you search for a job or pursue graduate studies.
