The exercise science program at Wingate equips you with the fundamental knowledge and the practical skills you need for a career in the fitness profession.
Classes in the program include anatomy and physiology, sports nutrition, kinesiology and exercise programming. Coursework is combined with a professional internship experience, so graduates are prepared to enter the field of exercise and sport science or to go on to graduate school.
My favorite class at Wingate was definitely my internship. It allowed me to get great hands-on experience and apply the knowledge I learned in the classroom setting to real-life situations. Wingate helped me grow as a person and realize the impact we can make on others around us, whether that’s through giving back to the community or small acts of kindness.
