The Exercise Science program offers elective courses for students interested in the relationship among physical activity, weight control, disease prevention, stress management and nutrition for optimal health and performance.

Opportunities exist for students to establish personal programs of exercise, weight control, nutrition, stress management and substance abuse avoidance. Disease prevention and quality of life are components of many of the course offerings. Selecting courses in exercise science can be especially meaningful to students entering a health-related career, with the current emphasis placed on health promotion and disease prevention within the health care delivery system.

Students can complete a baccalaureate degree in Health Sciences with an Exercise Science academic concentration. See Health Sciences Program in this section of the catalog. For a description of the Master of Science in exercise science program, see the Oakland University Graduate Catalog.
