Exercise Science is a multidisciplinary field of study involving the active human body. Exercise Science professionals are a part of a multidisciplinary team that work to understand and improve the health of both those with chronic diseases and conditions through therapeutic rehabilitation and the performance of an athlete through strength and conditioning programs.

Exercise Science Professionals will serve in:

  • College Sport Teams
  • Human and Athletic Performance Centers
  • Fitness and Wellness Centers
  • Hospital Fitness and Rehabilitation Centers
  • University / Industry Research laboratories
  • Weight Control Programs

Students enrolled in Marshall University’s Exercise Science Programs obtain hands-on experiences with exercise physiology and fitness assessment within our state of the art Exercise Physiology Laboratories (MUEPL) and through internship opportunities in Applied or Clinical Exercise Physiology.

Marshall University Exercise Science students are well-prepared for premier certifications in exercise such as American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
