Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science
The discipline of Exercise Science examines the body’s physiological responses to exercise, the role of regular physical activity in maintaining health and wellness, and the chronic health conditions that are associated with physical inactivity (i.e., heart disease, diabetes, obesity). Exercise Science professionals work in a variety of health-related settings, including cardiac rehabilitation, commercial and corporate fitness and wellness centers, health clubs, and research centers.
The Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science degree program is the largest program in the Department of Kinesiology. Students wishing to major in Exercise Science can choose from two degree tracks:
- Clinical Health Professions Track - This track prepares students to enter post-bachelor's professional degree programs such as: Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Medical School, Dental School, and many other options.
- Fitness/Wellness Track - This track prepares students for careers and programs such as: Strength and Conditioning (CSCS®), Personal Training (CPT), Corporate Fitness, Occupational Therapy, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Exercise Prescription, Graduate School options such as Athletic Training & Exercise Science, and many other options.
Both degree plan options require the completion of a clinical internship in an exercise science or health-related setting.
