Exercise Science

Students with a passion for human health and exercise can pursue a major in exercise science, where they will study human movement and how the body adapts and responds to physical activity, health, exercise and sports. 

Why Exercise Science?

  • Health and fitness is a booming industry.
  • It can lead to careers in the health and fitness industry, including personal training, strength and conditioning coaching and wellness coaching.
  • It can be a precursor to further graduate study in physical therapy, occupational therapy or physician assistant studies programs. 

Stephens offers a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science.

The exercise science core includes human anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology, exercise and special populations, stress testing, exercise prescription and human movement science.

Students have the opportunity to strengthen their science background by taking electives from the biology offerings and to enhance their people skills by selecting health science courses aligned with their goals and interests.
