This course of study would be useful for students with an interest in exercise and sport and for those considering graduate study and/or a career in exercise science; community, worksite, or other fitness programs; and the health sciences such as physical therapy and medicine.


Six courses including 100 and either 210 or 215. The other courses (16 credits) may be selected from ESS departmental offerings (check the Smith College course catalogue for all current course offerings).
