BS Nutrition and Exercise Physiology

Required Courses

BS NEP courses are taken in a set order, and each class is only offered once a year. In the senior year, students have a choice to follow the Applied Exercise Track, or the Community and Population Health Track. Your faculty advisor can help you decide which is the best one for your career goals and personal interests.

For official NEP course descriptions, see the WSU catalog.
