About

The Exercise Science program at the University of South Alabama offers a broad course of study to allow students the opportunity to prepare for a career in exercise science that is tailored to their specific interests.

Overview

The Exercise Science program at the University of South Alabama allows students to select from three degree track options:

Internship track

The internship track includes coursework and experiences in preparation for a career in clinical settings, such as wellness and fitness, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, and sports performance. The internship is a fantastic opportunity to gain practical experience for resumé development and to foster professional connections within the student’s area of interest. This track can be completed in one year.

Capstone Project track

The capstone project track includes a guided research experience with a faculty advisor. Students in this track complete a research project, applying the knowledge and skills acquired throughout their academic career. In comparison with the thesis track, the capstone project track is more narrowly focused on the data collection process and generally excludes the comprehensive literature review and formal thesis process. 

Thesis track

The thesis track includes coursework and research experiences that involve completing a thesis in an area related to exercise physiology and kinesiology. This track typically requires two full years to complete, but the timeline is variable depending on the scope of the thesis and prior experience of the student.
