This academic program lays the foundation to transfer to GVSU to obtain a B.S. in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Clinical Exercise Science. This is accomplished by taking the first two years of the program at GRCC and transferring seamlessly to GVSU to complete the final two years of the program. This Exercise Science program prepares students for careers related to physical activity, exercise, health and sport. The Clinical Exercise emphasis prepares students for careers related to physical therapy, physician assistant, cardiac rehabilitation, and other allied health careers; more education may be required depending on the chosen career path. By declaring this Articulated Pre-Major, students are on track to graduate with both an Associate of Arts degree from GRCC and a bachelor’s degree from Grand Valley State University within four years (if enrolled in classes full-time).
