What Can You Do with An Exercise Science Degree?

An exercise science degree is often considered a diverse “stepping stone” degree for those interested in pursuing a professional healthcare degree through continuing graduate coursework. The curriculum associated with our exercise science degree includes a solid foundation in human biology, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, exercise physiology, movement science, and fitness & nutrition principles. For those who are not interested in pursuing admission to graduate or professional school, an exercise science degree can provide entry to jobs related to exercise science and human performance.
