Why should I study Exercise Physiology? (B.S.)

Endurance. Strength. Flexibility.

Do you want to know what makes people bigger, stronger, and faster? Is eating well and maintaining a healthy lifestyle a priority to you and those around you? If so, maybe you should go for the gold and study the field of Exercise Science. Youíll learn the science behind everything from weightlifting to low-carb diets. Exercise Science isnít just about lifting weights. Itís also about helping people overcome their fears, cope with and prevent injuries, and live longer, happier lives.

Exercise Science prepares graduates for entry level jobs in the areas of fitness, wellness, prevention of injury and rehabilitation through exercise and physical activity. Students apply scientific principles of conditioning and the ability to design a safe lifestyle including healthy exercise habits. Many graduates use their degree in exercise science as a stepping stone to a career in physical therapy or occupational therapy.

Although a Master's degree is not needed for employment in this field, management and leadership positions usually require a degree beyond the bachelor's.
