The mission of the Exercise Science Program at Carroll University is to develop entry-level professionals who can perform a range of health/fitness assessments and prescribe evidence-based interventions across various populations and abilities.  Students will possess strong critical thinking, communication, and interpersonal skills appropriate for multiple settings. The program will prepare students for professional certification exams (ACSM, NSCA) and post­graduate study in exercise science or other related disci­plines.

The exercise science program emphasizes the area’s body of knowledge, research, and practice. Constant reinforcement of content through practical experiences occurs through observations, exposure to clients in academic courses, practicum experiences, and full-time internships.  Graduates are qualified professionals who are liberally educated and possess the foundations for lifelong learning.

Individuals interested in health/fitness management are prepared to provide exercise and general wellness programs to apparently healthy individuals across the life span in safe and effective environments. Those interested in strength and conditioning are prepared  to provide training programs  to improve athletic performance  across the life span. Students are also well prepared for advanced study in either graduate school or a clinical health field.
