Health & Exercise Science

Major and Minor

What will I learn?

You'll be able to pursue your passion across a wide range of topics such as exercise programming and design, kinesiology, nutrition, injury management and rehabilitation. You will also get the chance to work in a hands-on internship setting and conduct your own research around your areas of interest. Through our wide selection of courses and flexible curriculum, you can choose the path that best meets your goals.

You will focus on clinical anatomy and its specific application in movement, mechanics and muscular exercise in relation to sports, posture, corrective exercise and activities of everyday living. A introduction to biomechanics & gait analysis will be included.

What can I do with my degree?

While some students proceed to graduate schools for an advanced degree in the health related fields, others become employed with health agencies, hospitals, fitness centers, business and industry, research laboratories or any other setting which provides physical fitness enhancement programs for clients and patients.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that occupations in healthcare are expected to grow almost 20% in the next 10 years, outpacing the average for all occupations.
