The Exercise Science program is designed to prepare students for employment at the entry level in health and fitness-related occupations and/or for higher education by training in the sciences that relate to physical activity, health, fitness, nutrition, wellness, and weight control. Completion of the two-year degree will prepare students for the ACSM certification exams for personal trainer and/or health/fitness instructor. The AS degree in Exercise Science from WCC is designed to prepare students for transfer to a four-year institution that offers degrees in sports medicine-exercise science, kinesiology, movement science, and physical education. Individuals that transfer to four-year institutions in these fields (and in some cases go beyond the four-year degree) can be expected to find employment in a wide variety of occupations, including (but not limited to) physician, physician's assistant, physical therapist, physical therapist assistant, research scientist, fitness manager, worksite wellness coordinator, exercise specialist, clinical exercise physiologist, coach, physical education teacher, and other exercise-related positions.
