Exercise and Sport Science
Degree & Certificate Options
Interested in sport science? We urge you to enroll early in PE 131 Introduction to Health and Physical Education. This course provides information about career options in health and fitness-related fields. It also provides guidance on how best to prepare for these careers.
When it comes to choosing a degree path, it’s important to know whether you plan to transfer to Oregon State University or to another four-year university.
- For those planning a transfer to OSU to earn a baccalaureate degree in Kinesiology or Pre-Therapy, LBCC offers an Associate of Science degree. Because there are multiple career paths in this program, it’s in your best interest to see an LBCC advisor as soon as possible. We also recommend that you apply for dual enrollment with Oregon State at the same time.
- For those planning to transfer to Western Oregon University or another four-year institution, we advise you to choose the AAOT with an emphasis in Exercise and Sport Science option.
Please work with your advisor to select your transfer destination.
