Exercise Science B.A.Sc.

Health, Physical Education & Recreation
College of Education and Human Service Professions
  • Program Type: Baccalaureate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2013
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 122 to 124
  • Required credits within the major: 98 to 101
  • Degree: Bachelor of Applied Science
Exercise science majors engage in the study of all aspects of human movement, including motor skill development and acquisition, biomechanics, movement efficiency, physiological responses and adaptations of organ systems, anatomical development, and psycho-sociological influences. The primary program objective is to assist students in preparing themselves for success in graduate and professional studies, as well as to be competent practitioners in clinical, health-related, and sports-related professions. The bachelor of applied science degree in exercise science has foundations in mammalian biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, and mathematics. After two years of science and liberal education, degree candidates engage in the advanced study of their selected concentration, focusing on professional and graduate studies or applications of exercise science (health care professions or human performance professions). Depending on the concentration selected, either an internship or research project is the capstone requirement. The exercise science curriculum uses laboratory experiences for active learning. Most upper level ESAT courses have a graded laboratory component. Students work under supervision in the Exercise Physiology Laboratory, Biomechanics Laboratory, and Motor Learning and Vision Laboratory. Students combine theoretical knowledge with practical experience in electrocardiography, exercise testing, exercise supervision, applied nutrition, and strength and conditioning procedures in a managed learning environment. They monitor and mentor students involved in exercise programs. Labs and other physical facilities allow learning via student research and activity. Substantial opportunities exist for interested students to conduct independent research under the guidance of faculty mentors. Such projects have potential to be presented at the local, state, and national professional meetings. This provides students with unparalleled opportunity for professional development and personal growth.

Special Interest
The bachelor of applied science (B.A.S.) in exercise science, with a concentration in a special area of interest,prepares students for admission to graduate programs in exercise science, the traditional health professions, and clinically allied professions. Special areas of interest fall outside the approved concentrations in health and fitness, and exercise sport science. They are subject to approval by the department. The required curriculum includes a liberal education background, a core of basic and applied sciences, ESAT core courses, and either a senior project or an internship in a sport, exercise, educational, or public service/workplace setting. This special area of study is primarily for students who intend to pursue advanced degrees in an exercise science specialization or to seek admission to a professional program in the health sciences that falls outside of the preparation given in the other concentrations.
Special Area Courses (30 credits)
Working in consultation with their academic adviser, the student develops a plan for this concentration prior to being admitted to candidacy. The plan must include a minimum of 25 credits. Courses come from appropriate academic disciplines and must be 3xxx or 4xxx level. The plan must include a statement of how each selected course fits into the "Special Area". After adviser and departmental approval, the plan's courses will comprise the student's concentration.
