Exercise science

Get in the game

The Exercise Science major includes study in the biological and physical sciences, exercise, kinesiology, nutrition, and psychology to advance the understanding of how the body responds to exercise.

The program enables students to pursue careers in public or private fitness and health industries or to continue graduate studies in clinical exercise physiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or other allied health programs.
