Exercise Science/Physiology

We offer a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science with the option to choose from two different areas of concentration:

1.              Exercise Physiology - View Requirements

2.              Exercise Specialist - View Requirements

3.              Pre-Physical/Occupational Therapy - View Requirements

Many students choose an Exercise Physiology concentration to prepare them for graduate school in that area or in other health care professions (i.e. Occupational Therapy, Podiatry or Medical School).

We offer a Master's of Science Degree in Exercise Physiology and a PhD in Health Sciences with a concentration in Exercise Physiology.

Exercise Physiology that provides graduates with a variety of career options, including exercise prescription and research. Degree applicants are expected to have substantial preparation in the sciences, usually including coursework in biology chemistry, physics, mathematics, anatomy, kinesiology, and exercise physiology.

Representative faculty research includes the areas of body composition, metabolism/nutritional requirements, environment, clinical exercise physiology, and the psychophysiology of aging as it is influenced by physical activity and fitness.
