We offer a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science with the option to choose from two different areas of concentration:
1. Exercise Physiology - View Requirements
2. Exercise Specialist - View Requirements
Many students choose an Exercise Physiology concentration to prepare them for graduate school in that area or in other health care professions (i.e., Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Podiatry or Medical School).Students also pursue the program with an Exercise Specialist concentration to prepare them for work in the clinical setting ranging from a career in wellness to cardiac rehabilitation. The Exercise Specialist concentration is currently endorsed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
Both options can be completed in four years.
