One of the country’s most comprehensive aquatics degree programs is here at Ball State. Those seeking a major in aquatics dive into a well-rounded curriculum aimed at diverse and satisfying aquatics careers. Course work ranges from facilities design/management and pool operations to aquatics-focused biomechanics to lifeguard training and aquatics staff development. Just a few examples of the diversity of electives include sailing and kayaking, teaching diving and synchronized swimming, scuba instruction, and camp waterfront administration. Certifications are available in such areas as scuba and lifesaving.
A 24-hour aquatics minor also offers valuable career preparation. Minors take a set of core courses that include water safety and pool operations, and choose to build on focused areas of study such as aquatics teaching, administration, or scuba. Aquatics minors combine their studies with a wide range of majors across the university.
The Aquatics School is an intensive, week-long program in water-oriented learning, generally offered in May. Ball State students may take the course work for credit, but the Aquatics School is also open to noncredit students.
