Kinesiology - BS, Exercise Science Track, Basic Exercise Physiology Concentration
The Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology offers several tracks designed to prepare students for a variety of careers. The track options available develop a strong science background making students excellent candidates for employment opportunities in human movement/exercise related areas (cardiac rehabilitation, corporate or private fitness), advanced graduate studies (motor neuroscience, kinesiology, exercise physiology), or professional school (physical or occupational therapy or medical and dental school). Course prerequisites are included in the various programs under all tracks to support students wishing to pursue professional school study or graduate school study. Additional program and track information is available on the Department of Kinesiology and Sport Management website or may be obtained by contacting the advising office in the department.
The Basic Exercise Physiology track provides a background in the physical and biological sciences required for additional graduate study in Exercise Physiology or entry into medical or dental professional school. Students pursuing medical or dental school use professional directed elective hours to meet professional school entrance requirements. Students planning to pursue a graduate degree in Exercise Physiology may enroll in independent study leading to an undergraduate research project.
