Exercise Science Degree

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

At Crown, the Mathematics and Science Department’s Exercise Science Bachelor of Arts is a degree that can stand alone, or it will serve as a pre-program for those continuing on to Athletic Training, Kinesiology, or other exercise-related programs. The degree was designed for students not only interested in sport and exercise, but also for those called by the Lord to go into athletics as a ministry.

The Exercise Science degree program includes rigorous coursework in biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, physics and math to develop excellence in academics from a Christian worldview. In addition, numerous health, wellness and exercise courses are included, as well as field experience.
