Program Description


The exercise science major consists of a science-based curriculum with specific emphasis on applications to exercise and health. This major is intended primarily for students who are interested in non-teaching careers in exercise science, health, wellness and fitness, and for those who wish to  pursue graduate studies in an exercise science-related field. You will study under highly credentialed faculty who will mentor you, and have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment in our human performance lab.
