Exercise science is a broad degree that prepares UCM graduates for career opportunities in health, wellness, and fitness (e.g., personal training, strength and conditioning, training for special populations, cardiac rehabilitation, and diabetes education/weight management). UCM offers both undergraduate and graduate degree options.
The Exercise Science option in the Kinesiology M.S. program integrates exercise physiology and biomechanics to develop an in-depth understanding of movement analyses, exercise metabolism, and body composition. With a strong emphasis on sport performance, the program engages you in applied research which prepares you for employment opportunities as strength and conditioning coaches, as sport science research assistants, and at sport development centers.
