An Exercise Science (EXSC) degree provides an excellent foundation for pursuing a graduate degree in a health professions discipline (i.e., athletic training, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant studies) or other health-related fields (public health, nutrition/dietetics, clinical exercise physiology, or kinesiology). The EXSC degree also prepares students for careers in commercial fitness, corporate wellness, or strength and conditioning.
