Through teaching and cutting-edge research, our students specialize in one of two academic areas: Exercise Science or Sport Management. The curriculum in both areas provides for critical thinking, scientific inquiry, and practical applications to the demands and needs of the health professions and the sports field. We also serve local, regional and national communities in our mission to enhance the health and well-being of their citizens.

Our program in Exercise Science educates students in the life sciences for careers in a variety of areas including medicine, physical and occupational therapy, athletic training, and exercise physiology. The program in Sport Management prepares our students for careers in the world of sports business including marketers, athletic directors, and facility managers.

The wide diversity and expertise of our distinguished faculty ensure that our students are provided with interactive and hands-on instruction, and contemporary knowledge and skills to enhance their ability to think critically and prepare for positions of leadership in exercise and sport settings.
