2018-2019 Undergraduate & Graduate Catalog [Archived Catalog]

Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science


General University Requirements


Students in the exercise science program at Grand Valley State University must follow all general education requirements as defined in the Grand Valley State University Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog.

Emphasis Courses


Students must choose between clinical exercise science or health fitness instruction as an emphasis within their exercise science degree program:

Clinical Exercise Science (35 credits)


Health-Fitness Instruction (32 credits)


Elective Courses


The following is a list of approved elective courses within either emphasis. In consult with an academic advisor, additional elective courses may be approved. A different course is required where a listed course has already been taken in the emphasis (e.g. MOV 310 and PSY 364 are required within the health fitness instruction so they cannot be used as electives within that same emphasis, but MOV 310 and PSY 364 may be used as electives in the clinical exercise science emphasis).

Program Costs


Students will be responsible for the costs associated with the required pre-internship health compliance check (immunizations, background check, and drug screening), travel to and from fieldwork or internship sites, and all textbooks and supplemental materials required for each course.

Fieldwork and Internship


Students are required to undertake both a fieldwork and internship in their junior and senior year, respectively.
