What does the new Exercise Science Concentration mean for me?
Exercise Science might be right for you if:
- You have a passion for exercise or sport training.
- You want to develop and implement individualized training programs.
- Work as a health and fitness professional in the following settings:
- University fitness center
- Corporate facility
- Commercial facility
- Hospital rehabilitation
- Community center
- You expect to pursue an advanced degree in exercise science or exercise physiology.
- You might be interested in the allied health fields like:
- Physical therapy
- Physician assistance
If you are an incoming freshman or transfer student:
You must choose a track within exercise science. It is best if you determine a track early in your progression in order to progress effectively through the program. The non-clinical track is designed to prepare students professionally for a career in exercise science upon graduation. This might include personal training or program design in a professional setting. The clinical track includes most of the course work of the non-clinical track, but includes curriculum designed to prepare students for graduate school in the exercise science field or as a gateway into allied health professions that include but are not limited to physical therapy or medicine.
