All students interested in majoring in Exercise Science should complete Hofstra University’s online application or Common Application. Students should declare their intent to major in Exercise science so the Center for university Advisement can inform the major program coordinator. In addition to meeting with an Advisement Center counselor, it is recommended that students also make an appointment with the Exercise Science program coordinator to verify course registration. Acceptance into the major is granted upon the recommendation of the major adviser and department Chairperson. Students must maintain a 2.5 GPA for in-major courses and overall.
For transfers it is important for you to contact the Exercise Science Program faculty to discuss potential transfer courses and credits in order to accurately and efficiently advise you regarding progression through the program.
Pre-requisite Requirements for Graduate School
It is possible to use your general education requirements and liberal arts elective credits to meet many of the pre-requisite requirements for many areas of graduate study (e.g., Physician’s Assistant, Nursing, Physical or Occupational Therapy, Cardiac Rehabilitation). However, program faculty cannot guarantee that all of the necessary additional pre-requisites will be met during enrollment in the Exercise Science program. Students wishing to increase the likelihood of completing pre-requisite courses for graduate school should make the program coordinator aware of their intention to apply for a specific graduate program and desire to utilize elective credits to fulfill the admission requirements.
The Exercise Science degree program is housed in the Department of Health Professions within the School of Health Professions and Human Services. Please contact the BSES Program Coordinator to make an appointment for major or minor program advising.
