George Fox University’s exercise science major provides students with a scientific foundation for careers in health care. The degree consists of a 53-semester-hour course of study and is tailored to students who wish to pursue graduate work in physical therapy or occupational therapy, become a physician’s assistant, or work in a variety of sports science-related fields.
The core curriculum includes courses in anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, exercise physiology and performance enhancement. Many graduates of the program pursue doctoral programs in physical therapy and occupational therapy; masters programs in kinesiology, exercise physiology or athletic training; or other areas related to human performance and corrective exercise.
