Exercise and Sport Science
Exercise and Sport Science (EXSS) is a branch of sports medicine that provides a link between physically active individuals and the medical community. The program prepares students for a variety of careers providing health and fitness assessments, skill training, and rehabilitation procedures. Sports scientists work with clients to create programs that will help them meet their fitness and wellness goals. The program also prepares students for graduate programs, including prerequisites for athletic training, physical therapy, physician assistant, and medical graduate programs, and for certifications offered through the American College of Sports Medicine (the Health Fitness Specialist-HFS and/or Personal Training certification) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist-CSCS and/or Certified Personal Trainer).
