Minor in Exercise Science
A minor in exercise science provides students from other departments across the University with the opportunity to gain experience in this area. The minor requires 24 credits of course work, including required lecture and lab courses in human anatomy, physiology, exercise physiology, and biomechanics as well as elective courses taken from a variety of areas within exercise science. Students interested in completing the minor in exercise science should contact the program academic advisor for additional information.

A "C" or better required in this course.
Courses may be substituted if the student has successfully completed comparable anatomy and physiology course work in another department within or outside The University of Toledo.
Courses noted with FL or SP are only offered in those semesters.
Students will be required to meet all of the prerequisites and co-requisites for the elective courses in the minor.
2.Describe the role of physical activity in the maintenance of health, with particular focus on the physiological mechanisms whereby physical activity reduces incidences of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity.
3.Compare and contrast: a) pre-participation screening/ health risk appraisal and stratification, b) fitness assessment and evaluation with appropriate exercise techniques of both apparently healthy and chronic disease populations.
4.Perform a search of the scientific literature within exercise science.
5. Develop critical thinking/analytical skills in the design and implementation of laboratory research projects.
