The Exercise Science option prepares students to work in the health/fitness industry or to work with athletes in a non-school setting. Students take courses in the biological and physical sciences in preparation for their coursework in the Exercise Science program. The program curriculum emphasizes the anatomy, physiology, and mechanics of human movement. Laboratory activities provide hands-on experiences with equipment commonly used in the field.
At the end of the program, students complete an internship in off-campus sites where they apply the knowledge, skills, and abilities attained by completing the Exercise Science program.
