I could list the typical clichés about what makes Mount Union unique, but I truly believe that what makes it unique cannot be put into words. It is just a unique feeling one has when they are part of Mount Union. 

Message from the Director of Exercise Science

The exercise science program here at the University of Mount Union has been built and developed with a focus on students. You, as a student, will have the opportunity to work with as well as learn from dedicated professors with a wealth of knowledge and real-world experience in the field. The faculty takes extreme pride in mentoring our exercise science students through out their college years and preparing them for meaningful careers in the health-related fitness field. While our curriculum is designed for student ownership in their learning experience, our small class sizes allow the personal attention to grow throughout the program, allowing a deeper understanding and passion in your field of study.

Housed in the McPherson Academic and Athletic Complex, the exercise science program will prepare you for various health-related fitness career paths through numerous experiential learning opportunities on and off campus. Our Clay Exercise Science Center houses a multitude of quality state-of-the art laboratory equipment for teaching, learning and research. Mount Union’s exercise science program will introduce you to big opportunities with the attention and individual focus of a small school environment.

We look forward to helping you in your journey toward a career in the health-related fitness field. Feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have.
