Overview

 Graduates of CBU’s exercise science program have gone on to careers in clinical exercise physiology as well as graduate work in physical therapy, athletic training, occupational therapy and other areas of allied health. While the majority of learning takes place in the classroom, many courses are designed to apply textbook knowledge in the lab, clinic and community.

Why study the Exercise Science program at California Baptist University?

Faculty routinely perform research and always bring undergrad students into the experience. We have state-of-the-art equipment to measure oxygen levels, cardiac outcomes, muscle function, immune parameters and environmental extremes. In our exercise physiology lab, we have a treadmill big enough for 6 people to run at the same time. The department is collegial (and not territorial) which means we happily refer students to our colleagues in order for them to find their passion.

Each year our program sends students across the world with Global Health Engagement. Through this program, they get to practice their discipline (physical therapy, strength and conditioning, athletic training, and more) in a unique setting. We have sent students to China, Africa, and the Philippines.
