The Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology is aligned with the Department’s student learning objectives which describe the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of a Kinesiology graduate (BA, BS, MA). These outcomes are consistent with the university strategic plan, department mission, and the standards set by professional organizations within the field. All undergraduate and graduate programs and options address these learning outcomes through specialized learning objectives. Specialized learning objectives are measurable competencies designed to address the relevant graduate, professional and credentialing standards. CSU, Chico graduates with a BA, BS, and MA from the Department of Kinesiology demonstrate knowledge, skills, and dispositions in the following areas.

The current objectives of the Exercise Physiology program include:

  1. Develop knowledge of the integration of physiological, biomechanical, and psychological sciences.
  2. Become reflective professionals that are knowledgeable consumers of exercise science research in order to prescribe evidence-based exercise programs.
  3. Develop the skills necessary to plan, implement and evaluate effective exercise- or health-related exercise programs.
  4. Students will demonstrate effective written and oral communication skills appropriate for success and advancement in the field of exercise science.
