Exercise Science and Health, A.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Exercise Science and Health introduces students to the biomechanical and physiological aspects of human movement as well as the factors affecting personal health and community health practices. The students will review the body’s response to exercise, performance testing and the development of effective programming based on research in the field. The Exercise Science and Health program serves as a foundation for the students pursuing a career in Kinesiology, Exercise Physiology, Physical or Occupational Therapy, Athletic Training, Physical Education, Health Education, Sports Management or Personal/Fitness Training. Our goal is for our students to be prepared for a professional certification through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) or the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
