The Bachelor of Science degree in health and exercise science prepares you for careers and/or graduate study in areas such as medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, health sciences, nutrition and exercise physiology. The program is science-based and human-oriented.
The study of human movement comprises an understanding of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, immune and metabolic systems. Foundational sciences, as well as exercise physiology, kinesiology, and clinical opportunities, provide the underpinning of the program.
The majority of the major classes involve experiential laboratory components to illustrate and encourage the application of theoretical concepts.
Opportunities for taking specialty elective classes are available to tailor the undergraduate major for specific graduate interests.
