About

Sub-disciplines include human anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, psychology, motor control and biomechanics. An individual studying exercise science should have a strong interest in applying scientific principles to a variety of human movement, exercise and physical activity settings.

The Exercise Science program is dedicated to developing a student’s critical thinking skills, capacity to solve problems and the ability to apply theoretical concepts. These abilities are addressed in classroom and laboratory settings as well as practicum, internship and independent research opportunities.

Elon’s exercise science curriculum begins with fostering a solid understanding of anatomy, chemistry, and physiology. Students then apply theories learned to courses in biomechanics, bioenergetics, exercise/sport psychology, neuromotor control, and physiology of exercise, expanding their knowledge base by exploring how the body moves and responses to exercise across various populations. Students learn how to ask and explore hypothesis-driven questions and interact with professionals in the field. The combination of foundational knowledge, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills along with hands-on experiences in and out of the classroom are skills that are essential to professional success.
