Exercise Science Undergraduate

The Exercise Science program offers a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science, a minor in exercise science, and a concentration in pre-Physical Therapy as well as elective courses for students interested in the relationship among physical activity, weight control, disease prevention, stress management and nutrition for optimal health and performance.

Opportunities exist for students to establish personal programs of exercise, weight control, nutrition, stress management and substance abuse avoidance. Disease prevention and quality of life are components of many of the course offerings. Selecting courses in exercise science can be especially meaningful to students entering a health-related career, with the current emphasis placed on health promotion and disease prevention within the health care delivery system.

Students can complete a baccalaureate degree in Health Sciences with a degree in Exercise Science. The exercise degree provides a strong foundation in the sciences and exercise science, and allows the student opportunities for practicum, research, and laboratory experiences. The degree prepares graduates for positions in the field and for competitive graduate degree programs. There is an option for a pre-Physical Therapy academic concentration. The pre-physical therapy concentration is designed to prepare students for the traditional application requirements for the Oakland University Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT).
