BS IN Exercise and Sport Sciences
Examine human movement from the perspective of a performer, practitioner and scientist.
Apply scientific principles to better understand and improve the outcomes of health interventions, exercise, and sport performance. You’ll study human movement through multiple lenses: physiology, nutrition, psychology, strength and conditioning, and motor development. In addition, you’ll have a well-founded foundation that comes through a liberal arts curriculum.
