Welcome to Exercise Science

The mission of the Department of Exercise Science is to foster professional preparation of students by incorporating theory, applied experiences, and research-based opportunities for scientific inquiry. The program strives to academically prepare students to support the human services industry in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Exercise Science is the study of physical activity and how the body responds to physical activity. Wellness and the quality of life of all persons are enhanced by participation in physical activity and sport. Exercise science is comprised of various sub-disciplines including exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor behavior, and the psychology of physical activity. Students interested in the exercise science major should have a strong background in biology, mathematics, chemistry, and physics.

Exercise Scientists rely on scientific knowledge in these areas to advance our knowledge of how the body responds to physical activity as a prevention of diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

The Exercise Science Minor program is designed to provide students with content from a breadth of disciplines in the exercise science field. The minor is ideal for students who are interested in broadening their experience and knowledge base in the study and analysis of principles related to human movement.

The Coaching Minor program prepares coaches and is particularly advantageous to those interested in working in an organized sport environment involving children or adults.
