About the Program

Inspired by helping others? Enroll in the Exercise Science Program to learn how to teach clients of all ages how to become healthy. Coursework includes youth and senior fitness, fitness cycling, Pilates, lifestyle changes and more, providing you with basic training to become a fitness professional. Gain valuable experience through an internship in the fitness industry and work with professional fitness teachers.

When you successfully complete your course work, you’ll be prepared to take national-level certification exams offered by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and the American Council on Exercise (ACE).

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.

Many national fitness certifications will count our EXSC classes (if completed with a passing grade) as professional development, satisfying continuing education credits for re-certification. Please check with your certifying organization in advance to make sure they will accept any course(s) you successfully complete.
