The Exercise Science Major explores the various sub-disciplines of Exercise Science in detail, including exercise physiology, exercise programming, motor behavior, exercise psychology, nutrition, research methodology, and more. Exercise Scientists rely on scientific knowledge in these areas to advance the understanding of how the body responds to physical activity to improve wellness, performance, and quality and life. To better prepare students for their lives after graduation, we offer two different concentrations: Allied Health Pre-Professional and Human Performance and Fitness.
