Exercise Science & Pre-Health Professions Major
The Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science & Pre-Health Professions provides students with a strong scientific understanding of the acute and chronic effects of exercise on the human body.
The coursework emphasizes current research, as well as its practical application, and prepares students for careers in several health and fitness related fields including corporate/community/commercial fitness, personal training, and strength and conditioning. In addition, depending upon each student's area of interest, the major also provides opportunities for practical fieldwork experience and research.
The major is also an attractive option for pre-professional students who intend to study physical or occupational therapy, medicine, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, dentistry, pharmacy, or enroll in a physician assistant program following undergraduate school.
