Exercise Sciences Mission Statement
The student-focused mission of the Department of Exercise Sciences is to affirm BYU’s Mission and Aims by developing scholars who integrate scientific and spiritual inquiry as they prepare for lifelong service and learning in the areas of exercise science, wellness, and health care.
We aim to:
- Train students to think independently at a level that inspires meaningful questions and creative problem solving.
- Inspire learning through student-centered classroom instruction and mentoring experiences focused on human health and function.
- Provide a culture and an example of service that inspires students to reach out to other students and the broader community as disciples of Christ.
The Department of Exercise Sciences offers two BS degrees, an entry-level MAT degree (clinical, research optional), an MS degree (thesis required), and a PhD degree (dissertation required). The Department Mission and Objectives guide the program areas at each level. Each program also has a set of goals that pilot individual programs.
