The BS degree program in exercise and wellness prepares students to become competent professionals who promote, design and deliver evidence-based exercise programs to improve clinical outcomes and the quality of life for clients with chronic cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic or neuromuscular conditions and those with developmental or physical disabilities.
Students are educated to conduct appropriate pre-exercise screening evaluations and functional assessments and to deliver evidence-based physical activity or exercise prescriptions to clients or referred patients with or without symptomatic conditions. Students are instructed on how to engage clients in programs to make a meaningful impact on their health.
Graduates have the scientific and applied knowledge necessary for passing the NCCA-accredited certifications related to exercise physiology and pursue Level 2 Exercise Is Medicine credentialing by the American College of Sports Medicine.
Graduates may work in clinical, corporate and private industries.
