Message from the Exercise Science Program
The Exercise Science program is designed to equip undergraduate students with
the tools and skills to succeed. The program consists two concentrations: Sport
and Human Performance and Allied Health. Students in the Sport and Human Performance
concentration work toward developing skills for careers as personal trainers, strength
and conditioning coaches, and sport coaches, while students in the Allied Health
concentration take courses and serve as interns in preparation for graduate studies
in physical therapy, occupational therapy, athletic training, physician's assistance,
Exercise Science graduates leave campus with all of the necessary coursework and
practical skills to succeed in graduate school and in the workplace. Through active
involvement and a learn by doing/hands-on approach, our students get invaluable
experience applying concepts learned in the classroom in our SPEED Center lab,
working with student-athletes, faculty and staff, and during internships with local
physical therapy clinics and Kia Motors' med unit.
The exercise science program encourages students to practice civility, develop
an affinity for diversity, answer the call of service, and strive for excellence.
