Exercise Science

The Exercise Science major prepares students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to become effective professionals. Students are encouraged to engage in creative thinking and problem solving to help them become lifelong learners and reflective practitioners. Pre-professionals are provided theoretical education and are then frequently challenged to apply this knowledge in real world, professional settings with diverse groups of people. Graduates are prepared for further study for professions such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, athletic training, sports nutrition, massage therapy, personal training, strength and conditioning, coaching, biomechanics, and exercise physiology.
