Our Students
Exercise Science major Rashelle Smith talks about the variety of career paths available to an Exercise Science major.

The health and fitness field is experiencing rapid growth to meet the needs of our society's current and future health issues related to obesity and lack of physical activity. Both public and private sectors recognize the importance of hiring educated and certified health and fitness professionals to design and supervise exercise programs and educate and motivate people to improve their health behaviors.

Thanks to an increased awareness of the many advantages associated with a healthy lifestyle, health and fitness programs are available through employers, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, wellness programs, fitness clubs, schools and churches.

At USF, the Exercise Science program will prepare you to meet these challenges.
