With a focus on human and anatomic functions, the Exercise Biology minor — if paired with one of the undergraduate programs below — will better prepare you to pursue a graduate degree in Exercise Biology:

  • Dietetics
  • Biomedical sciences
  • Biology
  • Nursing
  • Psychology
  • Chemistry
  • Pre-medicine
  • Physical therapy

Some courses may have prerequisites, so meeting with your advisor often is recommended. Completing a degree in a science-related field with a GPA of 3.30 or higher, along with a minor in Exercise Biology, increases your chances of being accepted into an Exercise Science graduate program.
