Undergraduate students and graduates alike can pursue exercise science degrees. Typical coursework includes anatomy and physiology, motor development across the lifespan, therapeutic rehabilitation, and electrocardiography. Those pursuing an exercise science degree may choose different areas of emphasis, for example, exercise physiology, exercise specialist, or athletic training. Sometimes, in fact, a school offers multiple exercise science programs for different career tracks. Programs are often flexible, with some coursework offered through distance learning.

An exercise science degree in Ohio may qualify a person for any of several certifications offered by the National Academy of Sport Sciences. Starting in the summer of 2010, the Exercise Fitness Specialist credential will require a bachelor’s degree. That’s not the most prestigious credential one can earn, however. That distinction goes to Exercise Physiologist. While there are undergraduate physiology programs, the well-respected NASS Exercise Physiologist certification requires a master’s degree.

Some professionals in Ohio pursue advanced degrees in exercise science while others use undergraduate exercise science degrees as preparation for graduate programs in areas like physical therapy, occupational therapy, or chiropractic medicine. Different tracks can pave the way for particular career paths. Anyone who is interested in athletic training or occupational therapy requires state licensing. Exercise physiologists don’t require licensing, but may choose to join the American Society of Exercise Physiologists.
