BS in Exercise and Sport Sciences

Blair College of Health

Health and Human Performance Department

On Campus

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.

When You Graduate

When you graduate with an exercise and sport sciences major, you will be prepared for employment opportunities in fitness and wellness (corporate, hospital, university), clinical cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation, and strength and conditioning instruction or coaching. Students may seek advanced study in physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, sports (sport psychology, sport physiology, sport sociology) or exercise (exercise physiology).
