Cleveland State Community College announces Exercise Science and Kinesiology programs that are geared toward advancing careers of health professionals.
Officials said, "As society becomes more active in exercise and physical activity, more professionals are needed to study the body and its physical movements.
"Kinesiology and Exercise Science majors explore human movement through a diverse range of studies in the biological, psychological, physical and social sciences. This includes health, exercise science, physical education, health and nutrition and exercise and health psychology.
"These programs take you outside the classroom to expose you to a variety of physical and recreational activities outside of the classroom, allowing students to enhance their overall health and well-being.
The field work allows students to gain hands-on, real-world experience in their chosen career field."
“These programs are the starting point for any physical activity based degree,” stated Aaron Bryant, assistant professor of health and wellness. “Exercise Science and Kinesiology encompass many career paths, such as: athletic coach, personal trainer, physical therapy, biomechanics, athletic trainer, athletic director, sport management and many more.”
This degree is designated as a Tennessee Transfer Pathway which will give students the opportunity to plan, administer and evaluate wellness and fitness programs, nutrition projects and exercise physiology tracks based in sport, clinical, industrial and/or corporate environments. Students will also demonstrate requisite skills and abilities for meaningful employment in exercise science related areas or pursue graduate studies in an exercise science related area.
