Exercise Science Major (Health & Wellness, Pre-Physical Therapy)
Exercise Science Major at Grace College features hands-on learning. The fitness industry is growing tremendously in today’s health and wellness oriented society. People are interested in improving their level of health and physical fitness. Regular exercise is one of the best ways to improve one’s well-being and increase longevity and quality of life. An exercise science degree can lead the student into many career tracks including personal trainer, private fitness club, YMCA/YWCA, health club, rehabilitation center, retirement center, corporate wellness center, sport medicine, athletic training, physical therapy, cardiac rehabilitation or exercise physiology. This major takes an applied learning approach, allowing the student opportunities for actual work experiences along with the course work.
