Exercise Science is an exciting and rapidly growing field of study. With physical inactivity considered a major risk factor for heart disease and other morbidities, exercise and fitness have become essential parts of daily life. Not only has exercise been recognized as important for preventing diseases, it has also been acknowledged as essential “medicine” in treating various illnesses -- heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, lung disease, Parkinson’s disease and obesity to name a few.
Located in the School of Health Promotion and Human Performance within the College of Health and Human Services, the Exercise Science Program leads to a Bachelors of Science (B.S.) degree. Besides the basic studies requirements, the Exercise Science Program is an interdisciplinary program based on the medical sciences. Required courses outside the department include those from the following programs: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, and Dietetics.
