The Exercise Science Major provides students with a strong science foundation emphasizing preparation for further specialized graduate study or direct entrance into a variety of fields related to exercise physiology, biomechanics, sport medicine and direct entrance to upper level certifications in the rehabilitation and fitness industries.
Course requirements for students who declare Exercise Science as their major Fall 2020 or later.
1 Not open to seniors. Contact the Undergraduate Academic Advisor for more information.
2 General Biology (01:119:101/102) sequence is also acceptable.
3 Quantitative Methods in Psychology (01:830:200) and Basic Statistics for Research (01:960:401) are acceptable substitutes.
4 While Physics for the Sciences (750:193/194) is recommended, two alternative physics sequences are available to students: General Physics with Lab (750:203/205 and 750:204/206) and Extended General Physics (750:201 and 750:202). Physics for the Sciences is only offered in a Fall/Spring sequence (i.e., 193 in Fall; 194 in Spring). Extended General Physics is offered in a Spring/Fall sequence (i.e., 201 in the Spring; 202 in the Fall).
5 These credits can be fulfilled using 1.5 and 3 credit courses; however, a maximum of two 1.5 credit classes may be used for elective credit. 3 elective credits must be at the 300-400 level. Courses outside the major (377) may be considered but only with approval and at least 3 credits must be from the 377 department.
6 Must have a minimum of 90 credits overall and be a formally declared Exercise Science major.
7 Must have a minimum of 90 credits overall and 20 credits in the major, be a formally declared Exercise Science major, join a pre-internship canvas site, and make formal application to the Internship Program Director. Students also have the option of completing a 6-credit internship.
