Exercise Science is the term used to describe the scientific study of the body in motion. The purpose of the program is to help students learn about the workings of the body, its needs under physical and emotional stress, and how that understanding affects human life.
Why the Mount?
Any college can teach you about the workings of the human body. At the Mount, we teach you how to care for the body and the person in it.
Our unique service-based approach to Exercise Science allows you to make a difference as you learn. Exercise Science majors are encouraged to conduct research on the effects of Exercise Science in at-risk populations. Community outreach and scientific training go hand in hand as you develop your skills while giving back.
What to expect
As an Exercise Science major, your coursework will span a number of scientific topics like exercise physiology, kinesiology, biomechanics, nutrition, and injury prevention. An understanding of all of these subjects will help you to become a well-versed professional who can approach health and fitness problems from a holistic perspective.
