The major in Exercise Science offers preparation for positions in corporate, hospital, and public wellness and fitness centers. The program also offers preparation for students seeking graduate degrees in exercise science and allied health, cardiac rehabilitation, and physical/occupational therapy.

Accelerated Bachelors/Masters (ABM) Program

High achieving students majoring in Exercise Science who intend to pursue a master’s degree in Exercise Science may apply to participate in the Accelerated Bachelors/Masters (ABM) Program. The program allows undergraduate students an opportunity to complete the requirements for both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a compressed time frame. Participating undergraduate students may count up to 12 graduate credit hours toward both degrees and obtain a non-thesis master’s degree in the same field within 12 months of completing the bachelor’s degree or obtain a thesis-based master’s degree in the same field within 18 months of completing the bachelor’s degree. For more information about the ABM program, see the Graduate Catalog.
