Exercise Science & Health

The Exercise Science and Health Program will provide students the opportunity to study both the bio-mechanical and physiological aspects of human movement and healthy lifestyles as well as the factors involved in health initiatives in the community. Students in the program will complete a multi-disciplinary "core" set of courses within a structured, exploratory program of biological studies that prepares them to transfer to a four-year institution. 

To further ease the way for transfer students, HCC also has an articulation agreement with the United States Sports Academy that allows graduates of HCC’s program to transfer into any of the Academy’s multiple sports-related programs as a junior instead of a freshman.
