About the Exercise Science Bachelor's Program
The exercise science program prepares students for a variety of careers in this field. Students are prepared to pursue careers in health and fitness instruction, personal training, strength and conditioning, and cardiac rehabilitation.
Concentration Areas (20 hours)
There is unparalleled interest in sport, exercise and recreation. It is a well-known fact that sport, exercise, and recreation account for $100 billion in annual revenue and 4 million-plus jobs. Thus, the opportunity for sport-related careers increases daily. To allow our students to be competitive in the job market, specialization is available through specific concentrations.
This concentration allows students to specialize in the sub-fields of exercise physiology and cardiac rehabilitation. The student is able to gain practical experience by completing an internship in a health and fitness related setting. This is an excellent concentration in preparation for ACSM certification as well as graduate school in exercise physiology.
The fitness management concentration prepares students to attain a variety of sport specialist positions in professional and amateur sport organizations, sport facilities, community recreation centers, health and wellness facilities, leisure resorts and other private or public agencies.
This concentration allows students to take coursework which is generally considered prerequisites to enter into a graduate program in physical therapy
Sport Coaching/Strength and Conditioning
This concentration focuses on the teaching of strength, conditioning, and coaching principles. Internships in high school and university settings afford our students an excellent opportunity to gain the knowledge necessary to become highly qualified and effective coaches and strength specialists.
