Exercise ScienceThe Exercise Science Program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in various health and fitness occupations, or for graduate education in exercise science or other pre-professional health-related disciplines such as physical therapy, physician assistance and medicine.  The program is also designed to prepare students for professional certification by appropriate organizations.  The academic foundation of exercise science is in physiology, bioenergetics, and movement anatomy and mechanics, with applications to exercise responses and adaptations, strength and conditioning, sport performance, and disease and injury.  Courses include human anatomy & physiology, fitness instruction, exercise physiology, fitness and stress testing, kinesiology, and injury prevention and emergency management.  The program requires a 375-hour internship experience (10 credits), and includes many hands-on opportunities in health and fitness initiatives and scientific research.
