The Department of Exercise Science has a long history, with the first of over 500 students graduating from the MS in Clinical Exercise Physiology program (formerly Cardiac Rehabilitation) in 1982. More recently, the first graduates from the BS Exercise Science program were confirmed in 1999, with 2002 seeing the first students graduating from the MS in Exercise Science.

Since the beginning, we have had more than 1000 students graduate from our programs.
