Exercise Science, Physical Education and Wellness

The mission of the department is to promote enhanced quality of life and wellness education through participation in physical activity, exercise, and sports for the people of Tennessee and beyond.

  • The BACHELOR'S and online MASTER'S degree concentrations are designed to individually cater to students who are interested in a variety of professional fields related to exercise science, physical education and wellness. Our range of course offerings allow students to specialize in a specific field of study and develop on-site professional skills through a culminating internship experience.

  • We are pleased to announce two new programs, an online EDUCATION SPECIALIST degree with a concentration in Exercise Science (projected Fall 2018) and an EXCEPTIONAL LEARNING PHD with a concentration in Health & Human Behavior (projected Fall 2019).

The educational experiences and training opportunities offered by the Department of Exercise Science are cutting-edge, diverse, and in-depth.
