Welcome to the Exercise Science Department. We are proud to offer many degree programs that allow for seamless transfer to four-year partners.  In addition, we offer many Wellness courses which transfer as well. 

The Exercise Science Department has eight articulated programs with four year partners and include:

Please visit the GRCC Catalog for more information on Exercise Science Academic Pathways and Programs!

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.

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.
