Bachelor’s in kinesiology paves the way for recent program graduate
James Crager is an avid mountain biker and workout enthusiast. He’s also the proud recipient of a brand-new bachelor of science degree in kinesiology, earned through Concordia-Chicago’s highly ranked accelerated degree program (ADP).
Crager chose kinesiology because it’s an excellent pathway to realizing his ambition of building a career as a physician assistant. With a bachelor’s degree in hand, Crager plans to apply to physician assistant programs this fall.
Crager was successful as an ADP student because its flexibility conformed to his busy life. He’s a husband, a father of two, and has a full-time job on the heart team in an operating room.
“Without Concordia-Chicago’s accelerated degree program,” Crager explains, “I wouldn’t have been able to attend class as a full-time student. That said, I really enjoyed the process and loved that the classes were either 5 or 8 weeks long.” Crager is quick to recommend kinesiology and ADP to those seeking to integrate degree completion with the demands of family and work. “I would recommend the Concordia-Chicago path, as you are given the opportunity to engage with others through evidence-based practice in a setting that allows you to go to class at home and on your own time.”
