The Exercise Science minor is for undergraduate students from any major in Bouvé College of Health Sciences as well as students in other colleges in the University wishing to expand their understanding of the role of exercise.
Bouvé students would be able to apply their physiology knowledge to understand the muscular, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, ventilatory, endocrine, and metabolic responses to acute exercise and the physiological adaptations to chronic exercise and physical activity.
Understanding of the effects of exercise on the human body might be of interest to the Biology major. An understanding of the body’s responses to exercise may be useful for engineering students interested in future careers in Bioengineering.
Undergraduate students from many disciplines could broaden their understanding of human body and the role of exercise and physical activity in cardiovascular and musculoskeletal function improvement, disease prevention and rehabilitation with a minor in exercise science.
