The Exercise Science program at St. Thomas Aquinas College is comprised of a biology core, a kinesiology sequence, and a sports and program sequence. The biology core will give you a solid foundation in science. 

Kinesiology courses will include personal wellness, aerobic and anaerobic exercise, stress management, and adapted exercise, which will be taught, in part, within the College's Exercise Science Lab. Your sports and program courses will focus on sports psychology, health and physical fitness, and organization and administration, to name a few. All of this comes together when you get your required internship in a local exercise science facility.
