About

The Exercise Science Education program from The Ohio State University involves the study of structural, functional and behavioral phenomena related to participation in physical activity and exercise in sport, clinical and community settings. In addition, it addresses the promotion of exercise and other health behaviors in community, work-site and health care settings.

Overview

Participation in sports is not a prerequisite; however, participation in sports and other activities requiring varied levels of physical activity would help develop an appropriate perspective for applicants to this major.

Possible careers

The Exercise Science Education program from The Ohio State University prepares individuals for work in hospitals, clinical fitness centers, rehabilitation programs or other programs that require exercise prescription, evaluation, body composition, general fitness testing, and physical activity, exercise or health program delivery. 

Graduates may also be prepared for work as certified health education specialists in community agency health programming, corporate health, public health agencies and university wellness centers.

With some additional course work, many exercise science education students find themselves uniquely qualified candidates for graduate programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractic, athletic training, dentistry and medicine, and optometry, pharmacy or veterinary medicine school.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • In addition to regular classes, students take practicum courses that offer concentrated study in areas such as underwater weighing to determine body fat percentage; assessment of muscular strength and flexibility; and fitness evaluation, prescription and supervision. 
  • The practicum experiences are intended to develop a high level of theoretical knowledge and practical experiences for those areas. Students also complete a 300-hour internship during their senior year.
