A healthy, active lifestyle doesn’t just interest you; it’s what gets you up at 5 a.m. and fuels you throughout the day. If someone saw your news feed, it would be full of the latest scientific articles on how the body moves and performs.
Your competitive nature means you want more than a degree; you want to be the best in your chosen profession. Why? Because you’re focused on changing lives for the better and being the difference in healthcare.
Flexibility that Fits Your Goals
Cleveland University-Kansas City (CUKC) offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Exercise Science with focused 8-week courses year-round designed to provide a deep-dive into class subjects and accelerate students to degree completion in as little as three years.
At CUKC, we go beyond theory to application. Our B.S. in Exercise Science degree program is based on the American College of Sports Medicine standards. CUKC students receive hands-on instruction and gain practical experience on campus, in class, and the field.
In addition to the B.S. in Exercise Science core academic courses, this degree program offers CUKC students the flexibility to complete their degree by taking a highly-individualized selection of elective courses. Along with their academic advisor, students will arrange clinical education experiences, independent study options, individual research projects, and other courses based on personal education and professional goals.
