The demand for allied health professionals is expected to increase to meet the current and future healthcare needs in the U.S. and beyond. Physical fitness and wellness play key roles in our society, underscoring the need for qualified professionals in wellness, recreation and sports. Sports, once viewed primarily through a performance lens, has become a lucrative industry with significant employment opportunities.
As a student at the Exercise Science program from John Carroll University, you will have a wide range of opportunities to pursue careers in fitness and wellness, exercise science, allied health, or the sports industry. Our overall program emphasizes the value and importance of physical activity in all people’s lives, and the development of professionals prepared to help everyone achieve maximum individual potential. We offer two majors through which you will prepare to accomplish your personal and professional goals:
- Exercise Science
- Mike Cleary Program in Sports Studies
As an Exercise Science major, you can pursue careers in exercise science, fitness, and wellness upon graduation from John Carroll. Or you can seek a graduate degree in exercise science, fitness, wellness, or allied health professions such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, athletic training, nutrition, chiropractic medicine and nursing.
You will take foundational courses in areas such as anatomy and physiology, development, care, prevention and rehabilitation of athletic injuries, and health issues, along with advanced coursework in exercise physiology, and kinesiology. You will complete field experiences during your first 3 years to gain a breadth of applied experiences, and as a senior you will complete an internship to gain in-depth professional experience in your career of choice.
Students that choose to apply for admission to an allied health graduate program may need to complete additional pre-requisite coursework required for admission to the specific program. Students should begin their research on pre-requisites for graduate admission early in their undergraduate career and maintain close contact with their academic adviser.
