Pre-Occupational Therapy

Pre-Occupational Therapy Program

Schreiner University offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Exercise Science. Exercise Science is the study of scientific applications to human movements and performance. Since it is the means to all accomplishments, movement is one of the most important things that man does. The study of Exercise Science seeks to determine the physiological, psychological, and sociological factors influencing simple movement and/or exercise. The program emphasizes the scientific application of these factors to human performance. The ability to logically and scientifically analyze and evaluate human performance is
useful in many areas.

Many professional possibilities exist in the area of Exercise Science, and more are becoming available each year. Some students elect to pursue a teaching certificate in order to teach Physical Education in public or private schools. Other students may choose to work as exercise leaders or fitness directors in private athletic facilities or corporate fitness programs.

If you are interested in a career in medicine, physical or occupational therapy, academia (Master’s or PhD. Programs), human performance research, or disease management of cardiac, pulmonary or metabolic diseases you can pursue the Pre-Occupational Therapy program.
