Why Study Exercise Science at FLC?

The Exercise Science program at Fort Lewis College hones professional skills and scientific knowledge through meaningful research, engaging classroom discussions, and practical real-world experiences that prepare students for graduate study and careers in teaching, coaching, sport administration, personal training, physical therapy, and other athletic, recreation, fitness, and wellness professions.

We also offer opportunities for teaching in area public schools, working as personal trainers in the Student Life Center, and developing exercise programs for real-world clients.
