Exercise Biology Minor

18 credits

The minor in Exercise Biology is designed to provide students with advanced preparation in biological processes in the human organism relative to basic and exercise sciences. The minor consists of advanced coursework in biology, psychology, and exercise physiology, involving students in theoretical and practical application of knowledge. Laboratory techniques and application of those techniques are strong components of this minor. This minor attracts students with academic preparation in biology and/or physical education, specifically sport physiology or applied health fitness. Students considering graduate study in physiological or biological sciences, as well as medical school, would benefit from this minor. Students interested in pursuing this minor should contact the Chair of the Exercise Biology Council. Due to advanced coursework in the biological, psychological and physiological sciences, several of the courses within this minor have specific prerequisites.
