After developing a solid grounding in science, this minor allows students to develop knowledge and skills relevant to Exercise and Nutrition. Students will learn fundamentals of recreation program planning, development and implementation, the design and delivery of exercise and physical activity services for apparently healthy individuals, as well as the relationship between regular physical activity (or lack thereof) and the incidence and severity of lifestyle related diseases and an understanding of the nutritional requirements for sport and exercise performance.

To attain a minor in Exercise and Nutrition students must complete 48 credit points of study.
