The Exercise Science curriculum includes a strong background across relevant science fields (including biology, chemistry, and physics) along with advanced courses that span a wide range of courses relating to the study of physical activity, exercise, and sport.  Students who complete this program are well prepared to enter directly into the workforce or continue to graduate studies in a wide range of kinesiology and health related fields.

Following full admission to the exercise science program, students typically require 4 semesters to complete their coursework. 

Please see the Admission to the Program page for more information on applying to the program. 

Students who wish to discuss their individual circumstances should speak with their academic advisor or email the department to set up a meeting (
