With the Sports Exercise Science program, students are prepared for careers in health-fitness

The Sports Exercise Science program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in any of the four health-fitness settings: clinical, commercial, community or corporate. This program includes everything from the study of the body’s responses to physical exercise to learning about bodily injuries and diseases.

Students will learn scientifically based methods and apply the material with hands-on experiences. This program prepares students to take the certification exams offered to become certified as a personal trainer and a certified physical therapy aide.
