The science of exercise is what we are about! It's not just about lifting weights, or running fast or far, it's about the how and why you can that is important. It's about the cellular machinery of the muscle for the lift or the run. It's about what provides the energy for the lift; it's about the physics of the lift. It's how the heart and lungs function and how they change and improve with training. It's about improving health. We teach you how to think about it, how to investigate it, and how to do it! It's the science of exercise.
You can choose to earn a bachelor of science degree in exercise physiology or you can minor in exercise physiology as a complement to another major. Our program focuses on exercise physiology and biomechanics built on a foundation of chemistry, biology, anatomy, mathematics, and physics.
Our mission is to prepare graduates that are competent, entry-level Exercise Physiology professionals who demonstrate critical thinking, embrace lifelong learning, and serve the health and fitness needs of consumers and society.
