Exercise Science (Minor)

Health and fitness constitute a major industry in the United States. As the newest major in our sport sciences area, exercise science is designed to prepare and train you for leadership positions within the fields of sports, recreation, physical fitness and allied health.

We offer both a major and minor in Exercise Science.

The allied health concentration is geared toward those seeking advanced degrees in such areas as physical therapy, physician assistant and chiropractic medicine. The pre-athletic training concentration will prepare students for the MSAT program. The sport performance track features a mastery of skills in exercise programming. Required internships offer additional hands-on experience in the field.

As a major in our academically rigorous exercise science program, you will have the flexibility to combine your curriculum with our popular coaching minor or a minor from another area.
