    What can I do with a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science? (Serious)

    To me, it feels like a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science is like a bachelor's degree in Psychology, Sociology, Latin, or English, and you need to couple it with master's degree to really distinguish yourself and make use of it.


    In my lucrative mindset, I feel like if I had a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering, I could get a fairly well-paying job with just that degree.


    In my "passionate" mindset, I'm really interested in Exercise Science, but I'd only have the resources to pursue a Bachelor's Degree (no graduate school), and I don't know what job prospects/future that would lead to.


    Any opinions or insight?

    When it comes to hard science, social science, or anything like that you need to PhD to get any job worthwhile unless you are coming from a top school and get recruited by a major pharm company like my friend did.

    Well you can get a personal trainer certification and go on to train people at gyms and health / wellness centers.

    I believe you can join the aerospace physiology program the air force offers.

    You can check on it, but for example my university offers with its exercise science programs assistantships, such as if you work at the university's gym / training facility or in the performance labs (20 hours a week) they pay a portion of your tuition. There are also department specific scholarships too for graduate school, so that coupled with the assistantships will cover most of my tuition. Theres always a way to do what you want to, you just gotta search and search.

The department achieves these ends by offering of an Exercise Science major and service classes.

    The major is designed to provide students with the essential knowledge and training to pursue a wide variety of career opportunities. In the past decade, the majority of graduates from the program have continued on to graduate studies in fields such as allied health and medicine, teaching, research in Exercise Science, and activity related business. Individual internship programs and field experiences are available to expand students' practical knowledge in their particular areas of interest."

    That's what I thought too. I don't think I'll have the money or discipline to pursue a Ph.D

    This is what I fear. If this happens, I might as well get a certificate to become a personal trainer, right?

    But I can get the personal trainer certification without the Exercise Science degree, right? Unless the degree will enhance my "reputation" as a better personal trainer?

    Why don't you go for a MS or other graduate study? I'll be majoring in Exercise Science at Rutgers next year, but I already have plans to go to medical school.

    On Rutgers' site they have a handbook for the major, and they talk about career opportunities and stuff. You can find that here:

    I'm currently majoring in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science, and after I get my BS I'm going to apply to LSU Health and Science Center in New Orleans to pursue my Physical Therapy doctorate. If I can't get into PT school I'll go to grad school to become an Exercise Physiologist.

    having your BA will help you more times than not in getting a job than those who don't (jobs totally unrelated to your major)... i know someone who got a BA in geography and thought it sucked when he found out he couldn't really do sh!t with it, but when he applied at the job he works at now, they threw him into their management program ahead of many others because he had his BA... starting for him was only 42 a year however, but he still got the job over people who already worked for the company because he had a college degree

    Some certifications you can, others you can't. For example the NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (great certification) you have to have a 4yr. degree in an exercise field.

    Don't get a degree to do training. You will be bogged down with student loans and a low paying job that has ****ty hours. If you decide to do personal training, find out what the gyms require and study for that certification. Sales skills are what is going to generate a profit for you. You could be the most knowledgable trainer in the world but if you can't sell yourself, you won't have anyone to train. Women tend to part with their money faster than men. I know some of the tricks of the trade for selling. It's a dirty business.

    I mean I could probably go to graduate school, but I don't feel I have the drive for it. I feel like I'll barely have the will power to achieve a Bachelors. And I certainly don't have the funding at the moment.

    Do you guys think I could find an "alright job" in the mean time with a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science, work a few years, and then use my saved up money to go to a grad school?

    Or do I need to go straight to grad school after college and pursue my masters?

    That sounds great dude, good luck. What does a Physical Therapy doctorate program entail?

    That's a bit depressing, but still encouraging.

    Sometimes I feel like this too, that is, wasting my college degree to do training. I know it's my passion, but I know I could probably "be unhappy?" and make more money with just a Bachelors in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering vs a Bachelors in Exercise Science.




    Thanks for the great replies so far, guys. Keep them coming!

    With that degree you can get the same jobs that I can get without it. Not only that but I'll get hired over you because of my experience.

    I don't know the limits of it per se, however I know many coaches who have it at the university level, PE teachers, personal trainers, and so on. Its a great certification, its not easy to get, its like the Ferrari of personal trainer certifications so to speak.

    Proven Results > Paper bull**** convincing people you know "stuff"


    Serious.

    Take pictures of clients who you get results. Build your own "brand" as a trainer and you can get hired anywhere. It's all about who you know.

    Networking trumps all especially in the world of fitness.

    well brah, i chose the "passion" route, and even if it takes me a little bit longer to achieve financial success, i'm willing to put the time and effort in. enjoying my career is more important to me than being rich.

    i'm currently interviewing at a couple of corporate wellness companies that look to have good potential. if you have an athletic background, strength and conditioning is a cool route.

    if you decide to get more schooling, physical therapy, massage therapy, occupational therapy... one thing about this course of study is there are plenty of different options.

    Hey man, great post. I've been meaning to reply and rep you for some time now.

    Recently, I've had a revelation myself. I'm coming to realize that perhaps money doesn't necessarily mean I'll be living a higher quality of life.

    As for the "athletic background" like you mentioned, I don't believe I really have that experience, but I am interested in enhancing ergonomics in a business environment.

    As for more schooling, I'll guess I'll just have to see. I'm kind of depressed at how much more additional schooling it takes to properly bring out the potential in a Bachelors Degree of Ex Sci.

    Physical Therapy school is like what, 4 more years of school after undergrad?

But a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology has many great things about it. For starters you can make around 45K a year in the health and exercise field. For graduate studies you can pursue Physical Therapy, Medicine, Pharmacy, Masters or phd in a field. It's a pretty hard program, and competitive to get into at most universities though. The difference between the 2 being mainly the science courses that you will take. Having the organic and biochem classes are needed for advanced understanding of nutrition and exercise.

    Two Cents from an Exercise Science and Psychology Major

    I will be graduating May 2012 with a BS in Exercise and Sports Science with concentrations in biomechanics and sport psychology and a BA in Psychology as well as a history minor. ESS is a HUGE program at many large Universities and at mine happens to be the largest program at the University with over 1000 undergraduates. ESS includes physiology, biomechanics, psychology, motor development etc. An ESS undergraduate degree is very broad covering the basics in all of these fields. At the BS level, ESS sets you up for national certifications such as those offered by NSCA (Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach-the standard for collegiate and professional strength coaches) and ACSM (Health Fitness Specialist). Both of these require an undergraduate degree in a related field and prepare you for strength and conditioning jobs and hospital wellness programs respectively. Personal Training Certifications do not even come close (I have two). ACSM also has clinical certifications to further career preparation in hospital settings (exercise specialist) and further so with those requiring masters level degrees (view the site for more). Other than the above, an ESS degree with a PE track is for teaching k-12 PE or perhaps teaching anatomy and physiology at the high school level. BS in ESS will also prepare you for athletic training certification (you must also do internship hours over a 3 year period).

    As far as higher education at the masters and PhD levels you have occupational therapy, physical therapy, medical school, masters degrees in biomechanics (think Nike and other sports equipment/shoe companies), motor development (research positions-industry and academia), physiology (research assistant in industry or academia) etc....

    In academia a masters level will work for junior college and community college level although that market is gradually shifting to the PhD level due to the increased numbers of PhD graduates. PhD in any of the specializations will prepare you for research careers in human performance, animals (zoology) etc.

    The point of this was primarily to demonstrate what one can do with an BS in Exercise Science or Kinesiology. Graduate level education opens up many more options but the BS level is not severely limited if you do some research. How easy is it going to be to find a job? I don't know numbers but with ESS being a widely held degree, there is a huge number of bachelor level graduates, more so than to fill the available jobs. Prepare yourself with internships and practicums during your undergraduate career and get involved with undergraduate research your junior year to ensure 1 or two completed research projects and perhaps a regional or national conference or a publication.*

    The key is to set yourself apart in some way...dual degree, language fluency, additional science training, hands on experience etc. Hope this helps for those out there considering an ESS degree.

    I have a degree in exrx and loved the degree. I have been a manager of two gyms since out of school and haven't had any difficulty finding a job. I will be going back for my masters here soon tho. Not sure what I want to do with it, but it opens up a lot more opportunities.

    Smile Versatile!

    I'm a senior in exercise science at Pitt right now, and I love the program. I'll be going on to medical school next year, and everyone I've spoken to has said it's a unique degree in the medical field, and everyone loved my holistic background. In the mean time, I teach group exercise for the University at $28.00/hr.. Not bad money for not even having finished the degree yet.

    These people are down on it because they don't realize the possibilities. I have a friend who graduated from the program two years ago and is first author on several publications in endocrinology/diabetes research because of an internship he got while he was in the program. All he has is his BS in exercise science.

    Lots of people go right into corporate wellness, personal training, coaching, group exercise, dietetics (depending on your school's program), weight management counseling, etc. Some of these require certifications that your courses will prep you for, and some school's programs even pay for. Also, if you're down for more schooling, you can absolutely find 1 year masters programs (Pitt has one), go to PT school, cardiac rehab, PA school, Med school, or probably a million other programs because exercise science gives such a broad background. Honestly, the sky is the limit.

    The only serious caution I would give you is that you MUST NETWORK, because it's a close knit field, ESPECIALLY if you want a serious strength and conditioning position. If you want to go into strength and conditioning, get yourself an internship at the school you want to work for. Volunteer hours with people you'd like to work with. Go out of your way to make small talk. This is true in basically every field, but I can't even begin to tell you how far it will take you in this one.
