Exercise Science, Wellness & Sports

Get moving towards an exciting career in the field of health and fitness. The B.S. in Exercise Science, Wellness, and Sports from Georgian Court University gives you the foundation needed to evaluate health behaviors and risk factors, motivate others to develop healthy lifestyles, and develop wellness programs.

With a concentration in either exercise science or health and physical education, as well as optional tracks for pre-physical therapy, pre-occupational therapy, and pre-physician assistant, our program can prepare you for graduate school in a variety of health-related fields. Thanks to partnerships with other universities, qualified students have an inside track to the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the University of Sciences and the Masters of Athletic Training at Monmouth University.

A concentration in coaching and related minors in sports management, integrative health, business administration, psychology, or one of the natural sciences let you customize the program to meet your career aspirations.
