Sport & Exercise Studies

The sport and exercise studies program focuses on introducing students to a framework of knowledge in surrounding sport and exercise disciplines.

A broad intellectual base challenges our students to explore foundations of human movement, personal health and fitness, and sport administration with multi-dimensional courses such as kinesiology, motor development, exercise physiology, sport nutrition, exercise testing and prescription, sport management, and sport sociology.

The integration of our classroom, laboratory, and field experiences with the college's general education program provides a well-rounded liberal arts education experience. Students graduate with a B.A. in Sport and Exercise Studies.
