This collection represents a sample of faculty work from the Department of Exercise Science. The mission of the Exercise Science Department is to provide a scientific background, which promotes critical thinking as it relates to health, wellness and the attainment of human potential. The scientific process and clear articulation of ideas are introduced through a curriculum that investigates the impact of physical activity on the quantity and quality of life.
