The exercise science program at Shawnee State is designed to prepare individuals for careers in fitness and health promotion, strength and conditioning, and wellness programs.
Students in the program learn how to assess and evaluate fitness levels for individuals and groups and design, implement, manage, and evaluate fitness programs. All students complete a mandatory three month internship in a local health/fitness facility.
Graduates of the program find employment opportunities in both public and private health and fitness facilities and in worksite and health care settings. The program also provides appropriate preparation for individuals desiring to pursue graduate study in fitness, health, and exercise science programs.
All courses in the Exercise Science Core and Track must be completed with a minimum grade of “C.”
