The Exercise and Nutrition Science program of The University of Tampa prepares students to work in the sports industry, business, government and in education as practitioners on professional interdisciplinary teams. The program is for students seeking a strong foundation for further study and research including those pursuing a terminal degree.


The Exercise and Nutrition Science program of The University of Tampa offers three entry points throughout the academic year (spring, summer and fall semester), and courses are scheduled to allow an efficient timeline to degree completion for full-time students. Students are provided experiential learning opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. The program helps to prepare for certification exams including the Certified Sports Nutritionist (CISSN) and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) examinations, the premier certifications in strength and conditioning and sports nutrition, upon graduation if they choose to pursue certification.
