Upper-class Undergraduate Program
Clinical Exercise Physiology is the core concentration within the Kinesiology program. The program prepares students (junior and senior classification based on total hours taken) to work in the clinical and nonclinical settings. Additionally, it prepares students to enter professional school or begin careers in numerous allied health and medical fields.
Students are exposed to a strong science background making them excellent candidates for professional schools such as Medicine (physicians and surgeons), Dental, Physical and Occupational Therapy, Optometry, Nursing, Chiropractic, and Physician Assistant programs. Most of the course prerequisites for these areas of study are included in the course work under this track.
Upon graduation, students are prepared for immediate employment in such clinical fields as cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs, pharmaceutical sales, medical equipment sales and service, corporate fitness, hospital wellness programs, and the occupational & physical therapy setting. Students may also work in other areas such as programs for individuals with diabetes, orthopedic limitations, cancer, osteoporosis, arthritis, programs for the elderly, overweight and/or obese.
Graduate study in numerous fields such as clinical exercise physiology, basic applied physiology, sport physiology, and nutrition are viable options for graduates of this program.
