Exercise Physiology Minor (54 credits)

The kinesiology program offers a minor in exercise physiology for non-kinesiology majors. Kinesiology majors may not add the exercise physiology minor. With an emphasis on movement and the functioning of human body due to exercise, the exercise physiology minor is an excellent addition for students interested in incorporating fitness and wellness into their major, or for those who love to exercise and be active and want to understand more about how the body responds.
