Program Learning Outcomes

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) define what students will know and be able to do because they have successfully completed the undergraduate exercise science program. Assessment is conducted on a regular basis to determine to what extent students achieve the PLOs, to guide program modifications, and to improve teaching and learning practices.

  1. Students will demonstrate comprehensive knowledge of essential principles and vocabulary of exercise science.
  2. Students will apply scientific knowledge to improve human health, fitness and performance.
  3. Students will demonstrate entry-level skills as an exercise science practitioner.
  4. Students will demonstrate professionalism and commitment to evidence-based practice and prudent decision-making skills.
  5. Students will display competence in oral, written and digital communication skills.
  6. Students will demonstrate effective team work and interpersonal skills in working with clients, supervisors and professional colleagues.
