The sports science degree is an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science degree with required course work from three disciplines: HPER, Biology and Chemistry. In addition to these courses, there will be three additional supporting courses from two different disciplines.
Upon graduation, students majoring in sports science will be able to recognize and explain the mechanical, anatomical, nutritional, chemical and physiological limitations of human motion, prescribe a safe and effective exercise plan for a wide variety of ages and body types, understand the interrelationship of physical fitness to complete and total health, properly select, safely administer and interpret a variety of physical fitness measures.
Additional Program Requirements
A sports science major must complete one approved elective from upper-level HPER or BIOL, and must take these four HPER mini-courses: HPER 7, 8, 21 & 28.
