School of Kinesiology and Nutritional Science - Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science (BSES)

A Pre-Allied Health Degree Program
(Pre-Pysical Therapy, Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Medical)

The Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science (BSES) program is designed primarily to meet the educational needs of students who wish to pursue strong bioscience-based study in Exercise and Nutritional Sciences that will prepare them for post-graduate studies in Exercise Science or in Allied Health.

The Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science program has two options: Exercise and Biosciences and Exercise and Nutrition. The Exercise and Biosciences option is designed to provide an in-depth study of the human organism during exercise and the effect of acute and chronic exercise on the human body. It provides a strong background in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics and is intended to arm the students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in graduate studies in Exercise Science (e.g. Exercise Physiology, Clinical Exercise Physiology, Kinesiotherapy, Biomechanics, and Motor Control) or Allied Health (e.g. Physician Assistant, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Chiropracty, Optometry, and Public Health). Furthermore, with additional course work (15 - 19 quarter units), students may complete the prerequisites required for admission to other Allied Health professional programs (e.g. Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine).

The Exercise and Nutrition option prepares students for graduate studies and for careers that are more focused on the nutritional aspects of health, exercise, and human performance.
