Exercise Science at John Carroll University
Knowing how to prescribe movement requires a deep understanding of how the human body works. At John Carroll, you'll begin your education with foundational courses like anatomy and physiology that explore how the body functions through different stages of life and degrees of health. In labs, practicums, and independent studies, you'll learn to read, interpret, and conduct your own research. Then you can narrow your focus on more specialized interests in upper level classes like Strength and Conditioning or Kinesiology.
And at John Carroll, you’ll get the individual attention only available at a school our size. Classes average 20 students, providing one-on-one guidance unheard of at other nearby institutions offering exercise science degrees. You’ll take introductory classes with the same professors who may one day oversee your independent research, connect you with an opportunity at a local business, or write your letter of recommendation for graduate school. You’ll walk away with both the broad liberal arts background and specific, marketable skills to succeed in graduate school and the health and wellness industries.
