    • An exercise and sports science major prepares students to work in clinical or academic settings or for careers in fitness instruction, scientific research, and nutrition. 
    • All exercise and sports science majors are required to participate in an internship and/or student teaching. The Twin Cities offer countless opportunities with physical therapy and cardiac rehabilitation clinics, nutrition centers, biomechanical research firms, health and wellness centers, and the fitness industry.
    • In addition to their studies, majors are active in Hamline’s 19 intercollegiate athletic teams, as well as in the university’s extensive intramural and club sports program that includes competitive men’s and women’s lacrosse, Ultimate Frisbee, and men’s hockey teams. 
    • The exercise and sports science major begins with a set of core courses covering the basic sciences and statistics. From there students choose elective courses that meet their personal goals. Disciplines such as biology, chemistry, psychology, and public health sciences offer a range of suitable courses and/or minor options, as well as the pre-health track .
