Exercise Science (B.S.)

As the most popular Health and Human Performance major, nearly 50% of our Exercise Science students apply to graduate schools to study physical therapy, physician’s assistant, chiropractic or occupational therapy. An internship and a full-year of research and statistics are required. 

Students interested in health-related professions such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and chiropractics may elect to major in Exercise Science. Students should consult with their advisor regarding pre professional requirements and suggested program of study.

Learning Outcomes
Majors will be able to:

  1. Possess understanding of human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics of movement and performance.
  2. Demonstrate proficiency in assessing health, fitness, and well-being and prescribing programs to achieve goals in a safe and effective environment.
  3. Demonstrate practical application of knowledge and ethical decision making in an appropriately supervised organizational setting.
  4. Analyze and effectively communicate (oral and written) scholarly work in health and human performance.
