Exercise Science and Outdoor Recreation - Exercise Science Emphasis, B.A.

The Exercise Science curriculum has been designed to address student needs and current market demands. Through practical experiences in laboratory settings using state of the art equipment such as the Biodex S4, students are exposed to real life rehabilitation experiences as well as researching functional abilities and performance aspects of collegiate athletes. Additional classroom and lab experiences allow students to conduct 3-D motion analysis, measure muscle activity using wireless EMG technology, and analyze gait patterns using the GaitRite System, as well as conducting assessments to determine maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 Max), body composition, and anaerobic power.
