Exercise Science

Achieve peak performance.

OKWU’s Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science prepares students for numerous career paths, from physical therapy to athletic training. We instruct our students about the science of the human body – how it moves and how to help individuals achieve peak performance.

Our Exercise Science program is unique in its commitment to faith-based teaching and coaching. We seek to focus on the importance of building a legacy based on significance, not just personal success.

Students with degrees from our program go on to pursue careers in  Strength and Conditioning, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, Personal and Athletic Training, Sport and Fitness Management, Coaching, Health Services, Chiropractic Services, and Community Programming.
