¿Qué aprenderé?

Exercise science involves the study of anatomy, motor behavior, exercise physiology, fitness assessment, exercise prescription and biomechanics. Students gain an in-depth understanding of these topics through classroom instruction and practical training in one of the many kinesiology labs at SIU.

This program covers not only the physical aspects of fitness, sports, movement and wellbeing but also the fundamental of nutrition, physiology and all of the components that comprise human health and fitness.

Career Opportunities

Exercise science is one of the country’s fastest growing fields. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an 11% increase in the number of jobs in the next decade and the median annual salary is $50,280.

An SIU exercise science degree prepares graduates for career success as fitness professionals as personal trainers, coaches, and health fitness directors in corporate and clinical settings. Jobs are available in a wide variety of settings—anywhere health and fitness assistance is needed. For instance, rehabilitation centers for cancer survivors and post-surgical patients hire fitness specialists to assist in recovery and healthy lifestyle adherence.

Graduates are prepared for pre-professional work in physical and occupational therapy, sports medicine, athletic training and conditioning, corporate fitness and personal training and they can further their careers with graduate study. Exercise science lays the groundwork for advanced study for countless careers in the booming health care industry.
