Minor in Exercise Science

Go the extra mile.

If you’re interested in adding an understanding of fitness and the biology behind sports and activity, a minor in exercise science can serve as a great addition to any major. Understand the physiological process behind movement — how the body responds to work, how it adapts to exercise and what training methods work best for particular populations.

The William Woods University minor in exercise science includes coursework in exercise program design, nutrition, strength and conditioning and kinesiology.

You will also be able to work in the $1.3 million Center for Human Performance, which includes state-of-the-art equipment in exercise testing and rehabilitation, train and work in our on-campus fitness facility, the Weider Fitness Center, and study in one of the only institutions in Missouri recognized by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Education Recognition Program (ERP)
