Roadmap and Advising

Program Description

This concentration has two options: 1) Exercise Science and 2) Therapeutic Exercise and Rehabilitation. The Exercise Science emphasis prepares students for graduate work in the areas of exercise and sport science, as well as for careers in personal training, cardiac rehabilitation, wellness, fitness consulting in business/industry and health clubs, and other paramedical and health related fields. The Therapeutic Exercise and Rehabilitation emphasis provides students with in-depth science-based coursework which meets the prerequisite requirements for most Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and other health related professional preparation programs. Admission to professional preparation programs is competitive and it is critical that students work closely with an assigned advisor to plan coursework.
