The Bachelor of Science in Health Science with a Specialization in Exercise Science is designed to prepare students for entry-level employment in the health/fitness/wellness field, or continue formal education in schools offering advanced degrees in health-related graduate programs.

The Exercise Science specialization articulates with the current Misericordia University mission by focusing on not only critical inquiry in a service oriented profession but in understanding and accepting all individuals to assist in providing competent and appropriate access to wellness and disease prevention care.
