Train for a Career in Health and Fitness
Fitness isn’t just for athletes. Physical activity is a key component of mental and physical wellness for everybody.
An exercise science degree gives broad exposure to courses in fitness, health, nutrition, motor control and movement science, exercise physiology and the psychology of sports and exercise.
Leverage our Fitness Community to Find Internships and Field Experiences
At Urbana, you’ll have access to exercise science faculty members who are eager to share the breadth of their experience with you. Urbana is great at applied exercise science and regularly receives referrals from other schools. It’s a rigorous program and you’ll be challenged.
Our Exercise Science students learn fundamentals and then apply them in real world experiences by training faculty, staff and students at our health and wellness centers. Moreover, our internship program is the conduit for students to gain valuable experiential learning leading to industry exposure and employment.
