Exercise Science Minor

The Exercise Science minor is designed to give students an understanding of the human body and how it responds to exercise and injury at all stages of life. Courses are designed to give students an understanding of the physiological adaptations and benefits associated with exercise, common sports related injuries, and the science behind typical rehabilitation protocols. Students will gain knowledge regarding the benefits and drawbacks of different types of training and nutritional regimens as well as hands-on experience in a field of the students’ choosing: athletic training, coaching, research, personal training, or physical therapy. Of particular importance is the Exercise Science Practicum, a structured hands-on learning experience designed to complement and expand on the student’s academic course work.
