Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology
With the BS NEP degree students are eligible to take a variety of certifications offered by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). It also provides foundational coursework for application to graduate programs, such as dietetics, medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or public health.
After completing a specific set of prerequisite classes (see list below) and the WSU general education requirements, an application (also below) is required to enter the BS NEP program. The prerequisites and general education courses can be taken at any accredited community college or four-year university.
Advising worksheets will guide applicants on which classes are eligible prerequisites at other schools. If your college or university is not listed, feel free to contact the NEP Academic Coordinator, Jill Wagner, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
