Movement Science Certificate

The certificate in Movement Science prepares students for entry level positions in the fitness field. Students will have significant preparation toward certification testing as a personal trainer or group exercise instructor. The certificate coursework can later be incorporated in the associate degree if students are interested in furthering their education.  

Students who successfully complete all program courses qualify for a certificate of program completion. 

Not all courses are offered each semester. Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students planning to transfer should check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides or discuss their options with an academic advisor. Number of credits may vary depending on the course selection.
