Major in Exercise Science

At its core, exercise science majors learn to recognize and examine the synchronistic relationship between the body, performance and exercise. By combining coursework in biochemistry, biomechanics, nutrition, exercise physiology and exercise psychology, graduates are prepared for entrance to physical therapy programs, the health-care professions or fitness and conditioning positions.

Along with entry-level skills for a wide range of career opportunities, many exercise science graduates pursue graduate study in exercise physiology, medicine, chiropractic, nutrition, occupational therapy, physical therapy and physician's assistant.
