Bachelor of Science, Major in Kinesiology (Clinical Exercise Science)

This degree track prepares students for a career in clinical exercise science. Future job prospects include cardiac rehabilitation, hospital/clinic-based fitness and wellness facilities, performance centers, research facilities, and graduate education in exercise science, sport and human performance, and allied health fields (physical therapy, occupational therapy, prosthetics and orthotics, etc.). This track is focused on clinical and research settings; graduates will work with both clinical and general populations in cardiac rehabilitation facilities, research laboratories, or a sport-science based performance facilities. A minor is not required for this track.
