Exercise Science

Program Highlights

Do you learn better by doing?

Our students begin their clinical studies earlier than at other schools, using professional equipment in our Human Performance/Exercise Physiology Laboratory, a rich source of of hands-on skill-building experiences that prepare our students for professional careers in the field of Exercise Science.


Real world application of previous theoretical and applied knowledge and skills in a professional setting, supervised by a qualified professional. Specific requirements will depend upon the supervising Fort Lewis College faculty member.
