Exercise Science

Students who enter the College and express an interest in the study of exercise science, athletic training, sports psychology, kinesiology or a related field have several course options and electives available. The program of study consists of the 43 credit hour general education core required for all transfer degrees plus the necessary elective coursework to satisfy the degree requirements.
