Overview

Using an interdisciplinary approach, students of State University of New York Potsdam will learn the research behind and the application of sound exercise and physiology principles.

Key facts:

Students are able to choose between two tracks: the exercise and sports performance track and the pre-professional track. Within the exercise and sports performance track, students are prepared to work specifically in the exercise science field, focusing on the enhancement of human physical performance, with an eye toward athletic-specific training.

While the Pre-professional track also prepares students wishing to work in the exercise science field, this program could be used to satisfy pre-requisites to any number of professional programs (eg: Occupational Therapy or Physical Therapy). However, students should check carefully with the specific program and institution to which they are applying to ensure the courses they complete at SUNY Potsdam meet that program's specific pre-requisites.
