Exercise Science Major, Strength & Conditioning Concentration — B.S.
The strength and conditioning concentration provides students with a theoretical understanding of the biomechanical, neuromuscular, physiological, and psychological responses and adaptations to exercise. Through concentration specific courses, electives, fieldworks, and internships, an exercise science degree with a strength and conditioning concentration provides students with the skills to assess physical function and the knowledge to improve sport performance through advanced strength, speed, power, agility, and balance training. Graduates typically work as strength and conditioning specialists and coaches at high schools, colleges, universities, and private training facilities. They also work as personal trainers and business owners, and successfully enter graduate and professional schools.
