Department of Exercise Science Accreditation/Licensure


The vast majority of exercise science (ES) programs (ex: exercise physiology, kinesiology, sports psychology, sports nutrition, biomechanics, etc.) are not required to be accredited. There are nationally-accrediting agencies that will accredit an ES program, but it is not mandatory that the program seek that accreditation. Our curriculum has been set-up to meet the criteria established by these agencies in order that we assure a quality educational experience for our students, and have the option of applying for accreditation at a future time.

Though no licensures through board exams are required of the ES student, the student should consider attaining a certification in the field upon graduation
