Major available through Cuyahoga Community College.
The Integrative Exercise Science Department emphasizes a combination of a strong science education, hands on experiential learning in laboratory and clinical settings, and a foundation in biomedical humanities designed to develop ethically grounded, humanistic healthcare, fitness and wellness providers.
Students majoring in Integrative Exercise Science complete a strong core of exercise science coursework integrated with biology and biomedical humanities courses. An internship or research project as a culminating experience provides the opportunity for the student to apply the theoretical knowledge of coursework and laboratory experiences into a practical or research environment.
Students must pass all required IES courses with a C or better and maintain a major GPA of 2.0. Students are also required either a minor or Sports Health Concentration along with the IES major.
