Always Available and Willing to Assist

"Exercise Science is one of the fastest growing fields of employment and is also one of the fastest growing majors on Creighton’s Campus. The faculty are always available and willing to assist the majors in whatever they may need. This major is also a great way to find other Creighton University students who are passionate about fitness, exercise science, or your graduate aspirations!"

Top Notch Professors

"Creighton's Department of Exercise Science provides a niche' for athletes, physically active individuals, and critical thinkers alike. The professors are top notch and truly have the students' best interests in mind.  Without the education and the opportunities Creighton's Exercise Science Department has provided me, I would surely not have had my pick of Physical Therapy schools before choosing the University of Nebraska Medical Center!"

Exercise Science has fueled my interests

"Osteopathic Medicine is centered on the holistic theme of the body.  Focused on systems and based on the ideas of Anatomy and Physiology, Osteopathic Medicine strives to give optimal care to patients.  From day one, the Exercise Science Department has instilled the same values in me.  I have had first hand experience with anatomy cadavers, nutrition research, and even nutrition and exercise clients.  With this experience, I believe going to medical school to become an Osteopathic physician fits just perfectly. The Exercise Science Department has fueled my interests of Anatomy, Physiology and the health profession by meshing such a perfect group of classes similar to nursing, athletic training, exercise, and medicine.  I can't imagine having a better group of professors and classes to prepare me for my next step into Osteopathic Medicine!"

Support and Guidance

"While many students graduating from Creighton University with a degree in Exercise Science will be joining a Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy or Medicine Program, this degree offers more than that. I will be joining a Masters of Athletic Training program upon graduation from Creighton and I credit my acceptance to the rigorous curriculum and
amazing faculty and staff of the Exercise Science Department. Coming into Creighton I was undecided upon what my major would be, but after taking some of the electives that Exercise Science Department offers, I found that this major was the best fit for me. This Department prepares you physically and mentally for post-graduate studies, and that is evident by the many students going on to graduate programs. Exercise Science sparked my interest in Athletic Training and guided me down the right path to becoming a Certified Athletic Trainer and I am grateful for the education, support and guidance I received from the Exercise Science Department."

Knowledge, Sweat & Camaraderie

"I cannot imagine any other field of study that is as empowering as Exercise Science.  As a major at Creighton, you gain strength through knowledge, through sweat, and through camaraderie.  You will be surrounded with individuals who will raise you up, who will challenge you, and who know the
power that can be derived from a healthy lifestyle.  Furthermore, you will build a toolbox that will be useful for your entire life, and inspire others to do the same.  The opportunity is right in front of you; don't let it pass you by!"
