The Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences (ENS) in the Jerry & Vickie Moyes College of Education offers programs that teach skills and knowledge needed to maintain and enhance human performance and well-being through exercise, fitness, sport and optimal nutrition. We offer undergraduate students exceptional educational experiences in a variety of teaching environments supported by faculty with diverse expertise. Our state-of-the-art facilities — including fully equipped laboratories (biomechanics, human performance, nutritional biochemistry and foods), a networked computer lab, and ample indoor and outdoor fitness and activity arenas — provide outstanding areas for student instruction and research.

With a curriculum designed to develop professional knowledge and skills, our graduates enter the workforce as fitness and nutrition professionals in a variety of educational, health and fitness settings, and are prepared to pursue graduate studies in their respective career fields. Through instruction, scholarship and service, our department offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Exercise and Sport Science (Fitness Professional and Exercise Science tracks) and Nutrition Education (Integrative Nutrition and Sports Nutrition tracks) and a Nutrition Education minor. We also support the efforts of undergraduates seeking Departmental Honors and/or the Bachelor of Integrated Studies degree, offering Exercise Science and Nutrition Education and as emphases for the BIS Program.
