East Stroudsburg University has a distinguished history in Exercise Science. The Department of Exercise Science offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and has received endorsement by both the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
We are proud of our undergraduate and graduate courses that provide the students with knowledge and understanding of Exercise Science.
The mission of the Exercise Science major is to provide students a vehicle within an intellectual environment that fosters their knowledge in the areas of Exercise Science. Through the Exercise Science curriculum, laboratory experiences, applied research, internships, and student-faculty interactions, Exercise Science graduates will have developed knowledge and skills essential for entry-level exercise science professionals or a continuation to a graduate level education.
