Minor in Exercise Science

Students will be given an opportunity to establish a strong foundation in understanding the human body with emphasis on the relationship of skeletal, muscular, and neurological anatomy and function as it relates to sport and human performance.

Having established a strong understanding of the human body students will participate in hands-on learning on how external forces impact human movement and the significance of these internal and external forces on sport performance.


Students are highly encouraged to complete EXS 4330 internship of their choice or under the direction of program manager.  Students will need to complete the Internship Packet agreement and must meet the following criteria:

  1. Must be of senior standing.(92 earned credits)
