Exercise Science Students


The Exercise Science program is designed for students to complete the Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science in four years. Our experienced faculty provides a supportive learning environment as students prepare for a variety of careers.

Students take general education courses and Foundations of Sport Science, which is an introduction to Exercise Science in the first year of the program.  In the second year, students continue taking general education courses and will also complete major course requirements each semester.  During the third year, students delve deeper into the Exercise Science content and continue the general education requirements.  The fourth year is designed to finish up any general education requirements and to begin your exercise science journey in the field by working an internship.

Students who transfer into the program will be advised with an individual plan to complete the program in a timely manner.
