Exercise Physiology Programs

The Exercise Physiology degree builds a strong science foundation that leads graduates to use their degrees to continue their education into medical schools, athletic training, physical therapy school and physician assistant programs. 

An undergraduate degree in Exercise Physiology will prepare students for three different professional directions: pre-professional program preparation, exercise physiology research, and exercise physiology careers.

A master's degree in Exercise Physiology can open up new opportunities in research, clinical exercise physiology careers, and careers in human performance when working with high-performing individuals.
