Exercise & Sport Sciences
The exercise and sport sciences department believes deeply in the mission of the University as it focuses on integrating faith, learning and living. Each class, laboratory, and clinical experience is founded on the fact that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and it is an honor to study and teach about God’s creation. Many classes are started with prayers or devotionals. The foundation of Christ-centered, highly trained and motivated faculty make our department a great place for students to integrate their faith and academic learning into everyday lives and prepare current and future students to be servant leaders for years to come. Our degrees provide students a solid academic foundation which prepares them for both advanced graduate studies and professional careers.
We offer the following degrees:
- Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science (ES)
- Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training (transitioning to MSAT program for 2020)
- Minor in Personal Training
- Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT)
The BS and MS degrees in our department are centered around national certifications and accreditations. The Athletic Training Education Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and students may sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination at the completion of their degree.
