Exercise Science

The Exercise Science major is designed to give students a scientific understanding of exercise and its effects on the body. Coursework and hands-on opportunities ensure that students are well-prepared for careers as exercise professionals in corporate, clinical, commercial and community settings. Students may also choose this major as a pre-professional program or as preparation for graduate study. The curriculum has been endorsed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).

Exercise Science majors who intend to pursue graduate studies are encouraged to take additional courses in the sciences, Business Administration, Gerontology, and Psychology. It is possible to earn a second major or minor in supportive or related areas such as Biology, Business Administration, Communication Studies, Fitness Management, Gerontology, Psychology, or Sociology.
