What to Do With An Exercise Science Degree?

Exercise Science Majors.

There is a lot of controversy when it comes to getting a degree in exercise science, kinesiology, exercise physiology etc.. I would do my best to explore your options if your considering getting this degree. It is a great degree to have but not a huge money maker. And it is also not the easiest to degree to get. I am lucky enough to have found a passion as a clinical exercise physiologist in cardiac rehab and enjoy what I do with the degree I have. Comment below with any questions. I Would be happy to answer!

Don’t forget to watch my next video on how to become a clinical exercise physiologist!

  1. I wanna study BS exercise and sports science major in sports management but i have a doubt cause I’m not an athlete and sporty, I’m just thinking if it’s okay tho?

  2. This video was very helpful! I am a senior in high school and I’m currently deciding on what path i want to take in college, there is a lot of controversy when it comes to an exercise science major but your video was very positive and inspirational!

  3. Great Info!
    Currently a Clinical Exercise Physiologist in a hospital out patient cardiac rehab setting, and I 100% agree. This is a passion driven field.
    If all you out there looking to get into Exercise Science, ask yourself, why? To make a ton money? To help others achieve a better life? Because the question you should be answering yes to should be the second of the two.

    For those looking to drive further financially, pre-med school, nursing school, or even clinical sales are all careers in which income will take a step up, keep in mind the costs that come with that.
    In all, ideally you want to be happy and excited for work everyday, or else things get old and boring real fast, regardless of income level.

    Just my two cents,

    Good luck out there!

  4. Shout out from San Marcos! I’m currently at TXST, coming up on my last semester. This video was really helpful! Thanks!

  5. Hi! I currently attend Texas State University and am an ESS major! My concentration is pre-physical therapy, but I am interested in doing clinical exercise now. Did you have any trouble because your concentration wasn’t in clinical exercise? I don’t want to have to change concentrations which would change the courses on my degree plan

  6. Thanks for making this video! I graduated with an Exercise Science degree 2 years ago and am wondering if you might have any recommendations for becoming a certified Clinical Exercise Physiologist and what that process looks like?

  7. Hello my name is rakesh
    I’m an Indian I’m working as a fitness trainer from part 3 yrs and I want to study exercise science in out off countries will you please give the guidance

  8. I was wondering if you knew if I could major in kinesiology exercise science and do occupational therapy? Or do I have to do the kinesiology health major?

  9. very informative video, where there any regrets as far as which major you choose? perhaps a different one that may have served you better in the career you ended up loving. I was wondering because Im looking at a few similar degree plans such as exercise science, kinesiology, athletic training, and physical therapy, I’m sure there’s pros and cons each depending on specific career you want to get to, but in your experience what is more practical. again thank you for opening up about your experiences post grad, gives me and I’m sure others a little more to think about.

  10. I wished someone told me not to do exercise science when I chose my major seven years ago. Now I would be the "someone" to alert all of you not to do it and really not to become an exercise physiologist. the field has no regulation, no authorizing body, no state license, and are confirmed "death" by professors who held positions in ACSM before. if cardiac rehab is your love, pursue either nursing or PT is more viable

  11. Thanks….. But I found by doing Grad diploma level 7 in Sports and Exercise Science is wasting my father’s money cuz I haven’t got any Job. I am Physiotherapist and further continue my study in Sports and Exercise Science from New Zealand. And got nothing after doing it. Not even in NZ , Australia and even at in India. So depressed now

  12. I’m thinking about physical therapist or a athletics coach, o getting an aquatics minor. I haven’t told my parents as I do not think they’d be very thrilled, I’m also looking into nursing. Good thing I’m still in high school!

  13. I have a question, I’m thinking about taking a Kinesiology major for a associate degree, can I use that degree to make me eligible to take the Physical Therapy Assistant Exam and become a PTA?

  15. What about the field of biokenitics do you know anythin about that? In my country of South Africa biokenitics is offered to sport science graduates in honours year. Let me know?

  16. Great video! I currently attend Texas State University and am an ESS major! My concentration is pre-physical therapy, but I am interested in doing clinical exercise now. Did you have any trouble because your concentration wasn’t in clinical exercise?

  17. Thanks for the video. I have a bachelors in exercise science. I recently decided to go back for my masters when PT school didn’t work out. I want to do exercise physiology and personal train.

  18. Hello Badriah! I wanted to know how was your experience studying for the CES? I noticed you wont get hired or given a opportunity to get experience in a Rehab center if you don’t have this exam?
