Exercise Physiology, B.S.

Exercise Physiology is the study of the physiology associated with human movement and physical activity. A major theme of the Exercise Physiology curriculum involves the acute and chronic adaptations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, and metabolic systems to such activities as exercise, sport, recreation, and rehabilitation. In this program, students will gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities to work as evidence-based practitioners in clinical and applied settings. Popular career paths include cardiac rehabilitation, strength and conditioning coaching, corporate fitness, health coaching, and general fitness. Owing to its foundation built on physiology, the Exercise Physiology program is used by some students as a natural stepping stone to other graduate healthcare programs like physical therapy, athletic training, occupational therapy, chiropractic medicine, physician assistant, nursing, medicine (MD, DO), and podiatry. Finally, students interested in a career in teaching and/or research often choose to continue on to advanced graduate study in PhD and EdD programs.
