Health and Human Performance Major:  Applied Exercise Science Concentration

The applied exercise science concentration provides students the opportunity to prepare for fitness positions in hospitals, retirement centers, corporate wellness centers, YMCA settings, community recreation programs, and private fitness centers.  Students who enroll in this concentration are also interested in pursuing Physical Therapy (PT), Occupational Therapy (OT), Athletic Training, and/or other post-baccalaureate program.

To earn a degree in Health and Human Performance with a concentration in Applied Exercise Science, the student must earn 120 total hours.  The curriculum requires the students to take APSU 1000 (1 hour), 41 general education hours, 43 hours in the major, and 35 elective hours.  For students pursuing a professional school (PT and OT) they typically use these elective hours to fulfill the pre-requisite classes necessary for acceptance into the school.
