The interaction of diet and exercise to an individual’s overall health status has never been as clear as it is at the current time. The two independent fields of study of Nutrition and Exercise Science program of the Southeast Missouri State University are linked together in clinical settings and in non-clinical settings, such as in training for competitive or recreational athletes. 


The Nutrition and Exercise Science program of the Southeast Missouri State University prepares students to provide services in nutrition and exercise interventions for the promotion of lifestyle change or performance improvement. The program is designed for students with a degree in an allied health field. Coursework emphasizes prevention of lifestyle diseases, exercise physiology, metabolism and research methods. Graduates can look forward to career opportunities in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, wellness programs and sports nutrition. 

This program is an interdisciplinary offering of the Departments of Kinesiology, Nutrition, and Recreation and Human Environmental Studies. Faculty teaching in the Program has expertise in all areas of nutrition science, health education/promotion and exercise physiology. The course offerings are synergistic and provide the student with the view from the discipline of nutrition as well as the view of the exercise physiologist. The courses in exercise physiology and metabolism are offered in the same semester; similarly the courses in clinical exercise physiology and pathophysiology are offered in the same term. This curricular design provides students with a view of the same issues from each of the disciplines during the same term.
