Overview

The Exercise Physiology program also prepares students to advance to higher degrees in exercise physiology and health related disciplines. Students often pursue certification through the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Strength and Conditioning Association to enhance employment opportunities. The program curriculum meets most admission requirements for the physical therapy program and is an integral part of the athletic training curriculum.

This degree includes a solid background in basic sciences to allow the student to develop an understanding of how the body responds and adapts to exercise stimuli. Students also develop the applied skills to evaluate physical fitness, and to design and administer appropriate exercise prescriptions.

Opportunities Upon Graduation

A degree in exercise physiology offered by Ohio University will prepare students for three different professional directions: preprofessional program preparation, exercise physiology research and exercise physiology applications.

  • Preprofessional Preparation

Many exercise physiology students use their degree in exercise physiology as a preparation for application to a graduate level professional program, such as: physical therapy, physician’s assistant, chiropractic school, occupational therapy or medical school. The basic science background of this program helps to prepare students for application to these professional programs.

  • Exercise Physiology Research

Some students are interested in pursuing a career in a research environment, such as academia. The research direction of exercise physiology requires an even greater emphasis on the basic sciences, with more classes in biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology. This can be accomplished by supplementing their degree with these courses.

  • Exercise Physiology Applications
Many of exercse physiology students desire to use their knowledge to work with individuals or groups to promote physical fitness, health and/or performance. These individuals or groups include: health/fitness, clinical/rehabilitation, and athletic performance. The program prepares students to work in all three of these categories.
