Exercise physiology lies at the heart of preventing illness and improving the quality of life for all populations. We offer a bachelor degree in Exercise Physiology at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. 


Those who study this in-demand field—projected to grow 13% by 2026, faster than the average for all other occupations—tackle obesity and other health-related illnesses, help reduce health disparities, and aid individuals’ rehabilitation journeys.

Our rigorous curriculum combines a strong foundation in natural and social sciences with concentrated studies in exercise physiology. You’ll complete courses that cover physiology, fitness, health, and management while acquiring and applying communication, leadership, planning, and organizational skills.

By the end of the exercise physiology program, you’ll understand the structure, function, and processes of the body and the multidimensional nature of wellness and be able to design programs that help individuals maintain healthy lifestyles.

A Career on the Move

  • Demand for exercise physiologists promises to increase as hospitals and other healthcare providers emphasize exercise and preventive care to help individuals improve their overall health and recover from cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. 
  • Additionally, employers are increasingly valuing fitness, wellness, recreation, and leisure services, leading to more programs for workers.
  • The result: The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment of exercise physiologists to grow 13% from 2016 to 2026—faster than the average for all occupations.

Programme Structure

  • Our program integrates vital science-based curricula with applied fieldwork to give you a broad clinical understanding of the field. You’ll complete a two-semester, hands-on practicum in a sport, fitness, health, or recreation area of your choice. 
  • For specialized and advanced practice areas like exercise physiology or strength and conditioning, you can seek additional certifications under the supervision of your advisor and instructors.
