The Laramie County Community College Exercise Science program is concerned with the many aspects of human movement and its application to physical activity and the quality of one's life. This program is suggested for students who are interested in a career in exercise science, sports medicine, physical therapy, athletic training, physical education teacher education (PETE), occupational therapy or related fields. Students complete coursework that provides a solid knowledge base of human anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and health. Three program concentrations are available depending on the student's interest and career goals. All students must complete the general education core and complete either the Exercise Science curriculum, Physical Education Teaching (PETE) or Sport Management concentrations. Students are urged to study carefully the specific requirements of the institutions to which they plan to transfer. Based on student transfer needs, course substitutions are possible; however, the degree requirements must be met. Please see an Exercise Science advisor for a suggested program schedule. The Sport Management Concentration leads to an Associate of Science degree and is designed to provide students quality academic and professional preparation in the business of sport in all of its many facets. The program offers a sound theoretical foundation and practical applications. Students plan, organize, lead, and evaluate within the context of a sport organization and/or environment. This degree provides the theoretical and practical framework for a number of professions that focus on leadership roles including youth, amateur and professional sports; recreational, college, and university sport programs; and the marketing and management of all sport and fitness-related goods.
