The Sports Medicine and Exercise Science program is a highly rigorous interdisciplinary major which integrates basic and applied sciences to prepare students for wide range of careers in health and fitness. A Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine and Exercise Science is an accredited degree that begins preparing students for fulfilling careers in vocations such as physical and occupational therapy, athletic training, exercise physiology, strength and conditioning, and medicine.

Students that pursue this major should have strong skills in math and the sciences, an interest in the inner workings of the human body, excellent interpersonal skills, and a desire to help others in a hands-on capacity.  Students who are interested in the "sports" aspect, but not necessarily the sciences, often find a better fit in Sports Administration, Business, Communication (Sports Broadcasting emphasis), or Public Administration.  Please speak with your admission counselor or a faculty advisor with any questions.
