The graduate certificate in exercise science is designed for individuals who wish to obtain nationally recognized certifications and eventually become gainfully employed in the physical activity, fitness, exercise science, or lifestyle appraisal industries. Building on the knowledge students have already acquired in their undergraduate degree programs, this program provides in-depth instruction in the areas of fitness assessment, health and lifestyle counseling, exercise prescription and delivery, health promotion, group exercise leadership, health and fitness management, marketing and entrepreneurship, ergonomic assessment and functional abilities assessment. The EXSC certificate consists of four graduate-level courses (12 hours) including fitness management, chronic diseases and obesity, principles of human performance, and sports psychology.
