Bachelor Science in Exercise Science Georgia Southwestern State University College of Nursing and Health Sciences
Exercise Science is a broad-reaching degree that prepares students for various health-sciences careers related to health, movement, performance, and rehabilitation. The program builds the foundational scientific background and practical, professional skills necessary to succeed in dynamic performance or health-care environments, as well as to pursue graduate studies or professional advancement in exercise science/physiology or allied health fields.
Throughout the curriculum, exercise science students will build a scientific understanding of why and how exercise is beneficial to health, as well as how to use this knowledge to improve quality of life and reduce disease. Additionally, a foundational understanding is developed of how to work productively with performance-oriented populations. Towards building this knowledge base, exercise scientists will study exercise nutrition, strength and conditioning, kinesiology, exercise physiology, clinical exercise physiology, exercise prescription, and more.
