Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science

Estados Unidos


¿Qué aprenderé?

We know that exercise benefits the body. You feel that rush of endorphins each day you begin your routine. With time, your focus and determination manifest as increased strength, and you find yourself pushing your boundaries—going farther than before or working against more resistance. But, what does exercise actually do to the body? More importantly, how does physical fitness extend from enjoyment to an activity designed to nurture and support your long-term health?

That’s the goal of Saginaw Valley State University’s Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science degree. This multidisciplinary program explores the science behind movement and the impact physical activity has on health, fitness, and athletics. As a discipline, exercise health finds its roots in the life sciences. After enrolling, your journey begins with a broad introduction to chemistry, biology, and physics before you discover how human movement influences a person’s daily performance, from their fitness routine to their overall quality of life.

This knowledge prepares you for a career promoting wellness and exercise as a tool of disease and injury prevention. Our program’s dynamic curriculum covers the scope to become an ACSM Health/Fitness Instructor or NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

Experiential learning allows you to observe engaged professionals, practice the theories introduced in the classroom, and begin promoting the benefits of exercise. The Department of Exercise Science integrates hands-on applications into the curriculum. Internships and practicum assignments let students grow and build meaningful connections while assisting sports teams, clinical staff, or community organizations. On campus, interactive environments, including SVSU’s state-of-the-art laboratory space and classrooms, let you continue practicing your skills. Gain valuable, inspirational insights while participating in research led by our department’s award-winning faculty, or strive to uplift the surrounding community through service learning opportunities.

Once enrolled, expect an engaging curriculum designed to challenge you and stir excitement every time you’re in the classroom, a simulated environment, or out in the field. Setting the stage for your career, you’ll start by learning the sciences behind movement, including experimental biology, physiology, and anatomy, before you acquire skills in:

first aid;
recognizing, managing, and preventing sports injuries;

kinesiology and functional anatomy;
teaching and assessing physical fitness;
prescribing exercise-based treatment plans;
administering fitness programs and overseeing facilities;
nutrition in relation to physical activity;

motor learning and development; and
adapting exercise programs to acute and chronic conditions.
