THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM

Delaware Tech's associate degree program in Exercise Science prepares students as fitness technicians enabling them to properly conduct health screenings, administer exercise tests, and develop cardiovascular and strength training exercise programs. Students will develop an in-depth understanding of exercise physiology, kinesiology, exercise testing, and fitness programming.
