The B.S. degree in health and exercise science is a non-teaching certification program offering study in the physiological, mechanical and psychological aspects of physical activity and health behavior. There are three tracks from which to choose in health and exercise science.
The general health and exercise science track prepares students for careers in community health and fitness, corporate fitness, clinical physiology, research, medicine, sports medicine and others. The pre-physical therapy track allows students the opportunity to interchange some courses in order to meet the requirements of graduate study in physical therapy (DPT) while still leaving options open to the other possible career paths listed above. The third track, the 3+3 program with SUNY Upstate Medical University (UMU), allows students the opportunity to spend three years in our health and exercise science program focusing on physical therapy preparation and then continue with three years in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program at SUNY UMU. Students transfer the first year of credits taken from SUNY UMU to SU which then completes their fourth year at SU and grants them a B.S. degree in health and exercise science.
