The Exercise Science degree is designed to provide a thorough background in the areas of exercise and human performance. Students can choose from two tracks within the major:
Exercise Science Professional Studies Track designed to prepare students for further study at the graduate school level (e.g., physical therapy or exercise physiology) in order to become a physical therpaist or clincial exercise physiologist as well as certified strength and conditioning specialist.
Exercise Wellness/Fitness track designed to prepare students for positions within the private and public exercise science related sectors of communities. Individuals following this track will more likely pursue occupations such as working as an exercise physiologist in a wellness center or as a personal trainer.
