The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers.  Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.

The BS in Kinesiology (Clinical Exercise Science): 3+2 MSAT option is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Exercise assessment and prescription.
  • Fitness program design and implementation.
  • Critical thinking and decision making related to ethical and professional responsibilities in exercise science.
  • Strategies for performance enhancement and prevention of injuries.
  • Effective communication with a range of audiences in exercise science settings. 
  • Communicate and collaborate with other healthcare professions.
  • Promote healthy lifestyle behaviors to minimize the risk of injury and illness.
  • Implement systematic, evidence-based examinations and assessments to determine best care for active patient populations.
  • Utilize best practices in immediate and emergency care situations.
  • Apply therapeutic interventions, including therapeutic modalities, manual therapies, and therapeutic exercise.
  • Integrate best practices of policy development, documentation practices, and basic business practices to promote optimal patient care.
