Exercise Science Minor

Program Details

The exercise science minor is open to any major and is particularly useful if you are in one of the pre-professional programs such as, pre-medicine, pre-physical therapy, or pre-occupational therapy, or if you are a nursing major.

Your studies in exercise science will be an immersion in the study of movement and physiological responses. You'll gain a broad background in the sciences related to exercise, including anatomy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, sport psychology, and motor development and learning. You'll have hands on training working directly with people in our exercise science and biomechanics labs, and you'll gain professional experience through an internship in an area of the field you are interested in pursuing professionally.
