A healthy diet and regular exercise are key to a healthy life. Learn more about the science of exercise and develop a deeper understanding of the role exercise and nutrition play in health.

In the exercise science minor sequence you will explore the multifaceted, cross-disciplinary sectors in which exercise science professionals and coaches work, from the health sector to high performance sport. You will be introduced to anatomical terminology, and structural neuromusculoskeletal anatomy – the foundations for understanding implications for health. 

Further, you will gain an understanding of the human body's response and adaptation to exercise and exercise training and apply the science of exercise to achieve the best outcomes for health, fitness and sports performance.

A choice of an elective will enable you to further focus aspects of exercise and nutrition.
