Exercise Science

The Exercise Science program prepares students for entry-level master degree programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy or physician assistant school. An interdisciplinary approach is applied to this major, including classes in nutrition, psychology, biology, physics, chemistry and athletic training.

The courses meet or exceed the prerequisites for the majority of graduate programs. Students are encouraged to volunteer service in all aspects of physical therapy before and during their undergraduate studies. Academic advisors monitor student progress to maximize acceptance in graduate programs.
