B. S. in Exercise Science

Degree Requirements

The Exercise Science faculty at Georgia College believe in preparing our students through "hands-on" learning experiences. We strive to provide our students with every opportunity to become skilled in the areas of exercise testing and prescription. The GC Human Performance Laboratory is a learning environment that is utilized for both teaching and research purposes. There is an increasing need throughout the world for qualified exercise science professionals. Future career opportunities exist in the following settings or positions: corporate fitness programs, commercial fitness centers, cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation programs, strength & conditioning coordinator, personal training services, and ergonomics. A bachelor's degree in Exercise Science has become a suggested route prior to pursuing a doctoral degree in Physical Therapy. Exercise Science is a natural fit for students looking to go into medicine and physical therapy/rehabilitation because our program focuses on primary prevention. In addition, physical therapy is basically using exercise as a therapeutic modality. We train our students thoroughly in the area of exercise prescription.

The curriculum consists of courses from a variety of disciplines including health education, health sciences, and behavioral sciences. Central to the program of study is applied service learning opportunities offered through a range of course projects and internships. Georgia College offers an undergraduate curriculum that emphasizes liberal arts and includes professional degree programs that provide students with breadth and depth of preparation for their intended careers.
