Exercise Science Combined BS/MS - Pre-Physical Therapy Concentration
Our students develop a strong foundation in anatomy, exercise physiology, biomechanics, neuroscience, exercise prescription, and exercise nutrition through rigorous coursework. The science-based curriculum prepares graduates to work with individuals across the lifespan to promote healthy lifestyle changes through basic interventions and referrals. Graduates are well prepared and encouraged to take a national certification exam, such as the ACSM Certified Exercise Physiologist (EP-C) or the NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). Students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with faculty on ongoing research projects. The BS/MS in ES provides students with the opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in five years. Students are well-prepared for positions in health/fitness, cardiac rehab, injury prevention, wellness, and strength and conditioning.
