The exercise science program prepares students to evaluate health behaviors, identify biomechanical risk factors, and develop a comprehensive health and fitness program for a variety of individuals or groups. The students will have the ability to utilize these skills based on their knowledge obtained through their coursework (i.e. exercise physiology, kinesiology, and biomechanics).
