The Exercise Science program is designed to provide the student with a detailed understanding of the physical and functional adaptations to movement through advanced study of exercise physiology and biomechanics. The program integrates traditional lecture-based courses with hands-on laboratory experiences. One of the major strengths of the program is the combining of the practical application of exercise science with current research findings in exercise physiology and biomechanics. Graduates pursue careers in fitness, athletic, and clinically based settings. Graduates also pursue advanced degrees in exercise physiology, biomechanics or other professional programs such as physical therapy and medicine.
Meet Graduate College admission standards, successful completion of an undergraduate major or minor or equivalent appropriate for intended degree, submission of GRE scores, submission of a letter of intent to include education, career and/or research goals and philosophy, a current resume, and three letters of recommendation.
