The Department of Clinical and Applied Movement Sciences offers an Exercise Science concentration. This concentration culminates in a Bachelor of Science in Health (B.S.H.) degree.
Of major concern to society is the health and well-being of its citizens. Exercise Scientists are health care professionals that utilize knowledge of the human body’s adaptive responses to exercise to address an individual’s health, fitness, or performance goals.
Exercise Science students who wish to continue their academic studies will benefit from a well-rounded curriculum designed to prepare students for admission into graduate programs in Exercise Physiology or other Health Care professions. Exercise Science curriculum provides a strong foundation for students interested in an advanced degree in one of the Graduate Health Professions such as: Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), Doctor of Chiropractic (DC), Occupational Therapy (OT), Physician's Assistant (PA), Master of Prosthetics & Orthotics (MPO), Sports Psychology, and Pharmacy.
Exercise Science students who seek employment after receiving the undergraduate degree are successful in 4 distinct areas of employment:
The B.S.H. Exercise Science Program is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs and the Committee on Accreditation for the Exercise Sciences.
The 2016-2017 retention rate within the Program was 95%.
Bachelor of Science in Health, Exercise Science Track includes an internship component, so it is important to determine State Authorization of
Distance Education and if you will be able to do an internship in other states, if desired. Please see the UNF State Authorization Status
website for more information and updates. State Authorization of Distance
Education is a complex and dynamic environment. Prospective students should
check this site often for updates: http://www.unf.edu/distancelearning/about/StateAuthorization.aspx.
