Exercise Science

Course Descriptions:
Overview
Exercise Science These two programs, Fitness Leadership Certificate and Associate of Science in Exercise Science, are recommended for students interested in a career in exercise science, physical therapy, personal training, athletic training, sports medicine, and related fields. With the two-year degree, students will have the foundation to transfer to various four-year programs in exercise science and related fields.

With the certificate, students will have the basic skills to work in fitness centers, recreation centers, and health clubs as a personal trainer. For students who already have a four-year degree, this two-year program provides an area of concentration in exercise science that enhances your marketability in various fitness and wellness occupations and prepares you to take national fitness certification exams.

These programs will challenge students to learn the theory in the classroom and apply it to solve real problems with real clients. The classroom courses provide a solid knowledge base of human anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and biomechanics of human movement.
