The exercise science curriculum gives students a foundation in the anatomical and physiological aspects of exercise and sport through introductory and advanced courses in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and biomechanics. The interdisciplinary aspects of human functioning are reflected by required and elective coursework in the behavioral and nutritional sciences, sports management, and sociology. In addition, the general education courses at Fontbonne University provide a liberal arts focus to the four-year experience which includes ethical considerations in health care and sports program policy, problem solving and critical thinking.
