The Exercise Science minor is designed to provide students with content from a breadth of disciplines in the exercise science field. The minor is ideal for students who are interested in broadening their experience and knowledge base in the study and analysis of principles related to human movement. Students will acquire new information on key domains of the field including exercise physiology, psychological approach to physical activity, acquisition of motor skills, nutrition principles and injury prevention and treatment strategies. Specifically, the minor provides students with an introductory grounding in physiologic principles that help us understand not only how human systems respond to exercise stress, but also how the body changes with chronic exercise stress. Students also benefit from applied learning experiences in all classes. Such opportunities allow students to apply course principles and to develop new skills.
Students are required to achieve a grade of C or above in all Exercise Science minor courses.
Students must have a 2.5 or better overall GPA, C or better in Biology, and C or better in PSY 101 for admission.
