Overview

Pursue all that a physical health career has to offer

You like working out, athletics, and overall physical wellness. In fact, you’d love a career that deals with all those elements. But you don’t want to be locked into one specific kind of career within the field of physical health (at least, not yet). applied exercise science gives you the flexibility you’re looking for. It is broad enough to apply to a variety of areas and you can always use it in preparation for future doctoral studies. Most other programs train you for a very specific role; the Applied Exercise Science program of the Concordia University Wisconsin gives you the foundational tools to fit a wide range of jobs and academic paths. So, what is this program in a nutshell? The study of human motion.

The main content of this program will revolve around exercise physiology and applied kinesiology. Exercise physiology is the biology behind human functioning, while applied kinesiology is the mechanics of motion. Research will become one of your closest friends. Your goal in studying the research is to apply head knowledge toward enhancing physical performance, injury prevention, and the treatment/prevention of chronic disease.

What to expect

As simple as it may seem to walk and exercise, the human body is miraculously complex. By selecting this program, you can anticipate gaining a thorough understanding of the science behind exercise. Would you like a sneak peak? The curriculum delves into neuromuscular, cardiorespiratory, and bioenergetics research. In order to prepare for a variety of career options, you will be trained in critical thinking, research skills, and communication skills. Now that you’ve got an idea of the curriculum, let’s talk about the format. This program follows a “blended” learning model of online and face-to-face classes. At the end of your studies, you will be asked to complete a thesis or capstone project in an area that captures your interest. If all goes according to plan, you can expect to graduate in two years.
