Exercise and Sport Science

The concentration in Exercise and Sport Science provides a comprehensive exposure to the field of exercise science, with coursework in areas such as kinesiology, physiology, biomechanics, motor behavior, and exercise programming. Graduate study is complemented by coursework in research design, scientific writing, and statistical analysis. Both undergraduate and graduate students have internship opportunities (required for undergraduate students; optional for graduate students), in addition to the opportunity to work as a research assistant within faculty-directed laboratories.

Upon graduation, students wishing to pursue more advanced training in exercise science or related areas (e.g., physical therapy, medicine, nutritional science) can do so. Students are well-prepared to seek certifications offered by professional organizations such as the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
