Undergraduate Catalog 2019-2020

Exercise Science B.S.

Students pursuing Exercise Science will choose from one of three concentration* tracks:

  • Fitness and Performance concentration for students planning to be personal trainers, strength, conditioning, and/or fitness professionals;
  • Pre-Professional concentration for students planning to continue their education in a professional school such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, etc.;

  • Sports Medicine concentration for students interested in the area of athletic training who may want to pursue that degree at the graduate level.

*Concentration tracks will appear on the student's academic transcript
