About Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

Exercise science is the scientific study of how human movement influences health, fitness, performance and disease prevention. Nutrition science explores the complex relationship between the body, nutrients and health. Our department combines these disciplines to offer a broad understanding of the human body, including physiological, biomechanical and nutritional factors.

We offer undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs for every level of your education. 

Use your degree to pursue advanced professional programs, conduct clinical research, or enter the workforce. Our graduates work in a variety of industries including fitness, athletics, rehabilitation and other health care areas, hospitality and the government.
