"The Exercise Science major at VCSU provided me with excellent background and preparation for graduate studies in clinical exercise physiology. The science requirements in Concentration A meet all necessary prerequisites for exercise related medical professions like physical therapy and clinical exercise physiology, and the major courses are practical and highly applicable to understanding and practicing in all aspects of health, fitness, and strength training.


The Exercise Science professors at VCSU have real world experience in the field, and focus on relating learning concepts in class to real world situations that students will face upon graduation. Taking advantage of research and internship opportunities further enriched my learning and gave me relevant experience for both graduate research and professional endeavors."   - Doug Regester  2014 Graduate

"The Exercise Science program at VCSU gave me the knowledge and the skills to provide people of all ages with better health and well-being.  During my time at VCSU I was educated about training athletes and putting together programs that could help any individual person.  While attending my last semester my professor helped me get a great internship at the Sanford POWER Center in Fargo and I was hired onto the POWER staff once I graduated.  Without this program and professors at VCSU I wouldn't be where I am today." - Scott Stephenson 2014 Graduate.
