Video: Exploring Exercise and Sport Science

In the field of Exercise and Sport Science, success looks like a physically active society.

Whether that is through sport, physical activity or physical and personal fitness, students studying Exercise and Sport Science in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State will be exposed to a variety of activities and courses that look at physical activity in different ways – psychosocial determinants of physical activity, adaptive physical activity, rehabilitative physical activity and more.

Students who complete an undergraduate degree in Exercise and Sport Science will be prepared for a number of different career paths, including athletic trainers, fitness instructors, strength coaches, physical therapists and more.

“There are going to be so many experiences and opportunities, and it’s a lot of fun,” says Assistant Professor Megan MacDonald. “There are a lot of people who want you to be successful – your faculty, your peers and other students throughout the university, so enjoy it.”

To learn more about what types of courses students take, different clubs and programs students can participate in, various research opportunities available to undergraduates, possible jobs students might land after graduation, and to hear from a current student about his personal experiences, watch the video above or head to the Exercise and Sport Science web page.
