First Graduates in Exercise Science
In 2014, the Biological Sciences School began a new major focused on the science of exercise, created in tandem with the Exercise Medicine and Sport Sciences Initiative. This year marked the first time students from the major walked across the Bren Center stage during the School’s commencement. While those graduating with a degree in exercise science represent a small number of the overall students graduating from the School this year, the program is rapidly expanding, and we predict the Biological Sciences School will soon be recognized as a renowned institution for the study of exercise medicine and sport sciences. Congratulations to the inaugural class in exercise sciences!
