Exercise Science - B.S.

The Exercise Science B.S. involves a science-based curriculum that ties together traditional scientific disciplines in order to facilitate an understanding of the links between performance, physical activity, exercise, fitness, diet, and health.

The Bachelor's of Science degree in Exercise Science (EXSC) provides students with the knowledge to promote an environment of excellence and achievement in human performance and health. As part of our forward-thinking vision, EXSC will be used as a resource to train the next generation of scientists and practitioners in the latest techniques and technologies in the field. In addition to advancing the science, we emphasize translation of this research for greater integration into practice and application, preparing students for entry into professional programs that include medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, physician assistants, health promotion education and behavior, and other career directions. Students can also gain knowledge on basic medical screening for chronic disease risk factors, exercise testing, and physical activity and lifestyle counseling to reduce factors associated with mortality risk.
