About the Program

SFCC's Exercise Science program provides students with the foundational knowledge and skills required of fitness professionals. When you successfully complete your course work, you'll be prepared to take national-level certification exams offered by ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine), NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) and ACE (American Council on Exercise).

The curriculum combines theoretical knowledge as well as hands-on experience so you'll be ready to enter the fitness industry after completion of your degree. As part of the curriculum, students complete an internship in the fitness industry and work with senior teachers as teacher interns assigned to a variety of activity classes.
