Health and Exercise Science

The Department of Health and Exercise Science offers courses that expose students to the scientific basics of human movement with an emphasis on critical thinking, problem solving and hands-on learning experiences. Our classes involve the study of structural, functional, and behavioral phenomena related to exercise in sport, clinical, and community settings.

The educational experiences we offer are diverse and include knowledge related to anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, exercise physiology, motor learning, exercise prescription, sport psychology, physical fitness and wellness, human sexuality, and nutrition. Of course, many of these topics are key for students in Pre-medicine and the Allied Health programs.
