With a passion for human health, Taylor’s Exercise Science majors learn how physical activity and proper nutrition can improve holistic health and human performance—mind, body, and soul.
As an Exercise Science major, you will take chemistry, biology, and anatomy and physiology courses to learn how the body adapts acutely and chronically to exercise. Classes in fitness and performance assessment will teach you proper techniques to determine an individual’s health risks and needs and the best exercise prescriptions and nutritional regimes.
But preparation for your career and calling doesn’t stop with classes. Exercise Science majors have access to opportunities for direct patient clinical hours, life-changing study abroad experiences, and research opportunities. With personalized academic guidance from faculty with industry expertise, it’s no wonder our students regularly are accepted into the best PT, OT, and medical graduate programs in the country, with a 99% acceptance rate.
