Interest in fitness, exercise, and health is growing rapidly both in the United States and internationally. From simply tracking steps and counting calories to intensive training for marathons and other physical fitness competitions, the world is learning to keep a close eye on personal fitness.

If you are passionate about helping people manage their health and fitness more effectively, the MVNU Exercise Sciences program is for you.

  • Broad scopes — You will be prepared to transition directly into careers related to teaching, human performance, or sports management, or go on to graduate school to pursue advanced degrees, certification, or licensure. Our program provides you with a wide range of career options after graduation.
