Join us for breakfast on Saturday October 31st to hear from Exercise Science faculty about career opportunities in the field. We will also review how to start at GRCC and seamlessly transfer to four year partner schools without losing any credits, time, or money. Please rsvp if you plan to attend. A room location and event details will be emailed to you one week prior to the event. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Mission of the Exercise Science Department is to educate and positively impact the health of students and the community by offering academic course work, outreach, and practical learning opportunities that promote individual wellness skills and prepare future health, exercise science and wellness professionals for their future.

Because GRCC is a college of distinction, we implement a wellness (WE) course requirement that aims to enrich the quality of life and academic excellence of our student body.  One WE credit is required, however, two WE credits count towards graduation.

Students in our exercise science courses learn how exercise, nutrition, weight control and stress-management promote health, and how to relate those skills into workplace safety and wellness practices.  Studies also include the causes, prevention and management of disease, as well as knowledge of general anatomy, physiology and biomechanics to customize exercise programs for fitness, metabolism and weight control.
