Bachelor of Science in Exercise & Sport Science
The Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Science is offered within Temple's College of Public Health. Careers for graduates in the field include exercise physiologist, fitness industry professional, personal trainer, strength and conditioning specialist and other positions in the sports industry.
At the end of the Exercise and Sport Science program, you will be eligible to take several certification examinations, such as the American College of Sports Medicine’s Certified Exercise Physiologist or the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
You’ll have the opportunity to participate in research conducted in our state-of-the-art research laboratories.
- The Control of Balance and Locomotion Laboratory focuses on new techniques and assistive devices developed for treatment of patient populations with balance disorders including Parkinson’s disease, individuals with the loss of inner ear function, elderly individuals at risk of falling and athletes with concussion.
- The Athletic Training Division Laboratory, part of the Biokinetics Research Laboratory, enhances prevention, care and rehabilitation of injuries in a physically active population.
- The Cardiovascular Genomics Laboratory examines cardiovascular and skeletal muscle systems using approaches that include research techniques in bioinformatics, cell biology, molecular genetics and physiology.
- The Sport Concussion Laboratory conducts collaborative and translational research to connect basic science and clinical practice.
You’ll apply what you learn in the classroom through internship opportunities with community partners, allowing you to gain experience as an effective communicator and practitioner. Through research, you’ll develop the ability to use evidence-based critical thinking and decision-making skills to improve the outcomes of the populations you serve.
