intro

In the exercise science program, you will study the science behind physical and psychological impacts of exercise. Our active classroom experiences give you the foundation and knowledge to pursue careers in allied health.

Most undergraduate exercise science majors go on to attend professional schools in physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, or kinesiology in a master’s or doctoral program. We also offer a master’s in exercise science and a doctorate in kinesiology. Find out more by contacting us today.

Research

Groundbreaking findings are just another day in our labs. We’re mapping out how humans move. We’re discovering how our minds respond to physical stress. We’re even testing and engineering better clothes for firefighters and athletes. Here in the exercise science program you will have the chance to propose and conduct your own research.

Initiatives

Outreach

We’re learning more every day about how our bodies work, and why. But it’s not just about what we know. We believe in helping teach others to improve their lives. For example, our Warrior Research Center works with soldier athletes at Ft. Benning, Georgia to produce stronger, faster US forces.
