The concentration in clinical exercise science prepares you for a career in clinical exercise settings. Future job prospects include cardiac rehabilitation, hospital/clinic-based fitness and wellness facilities, performance centers, research facilities, and graduate education in exercise science, sport and human performance, and allied health fields (physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc.). This track is focused on clinical and research settings where you will be working with both clinical and general populations, such as at a cardiac rehabilitation facility, research laboratories, or at sport-science based performance facilities.
As part of the program, you will complete a 6-credit, 400-hour internship at a site aligned with your career aspirations. You will be under the instruction and supervision of a qualified and experienced professional in the field. The internship allows you to build experience and make job connections.
