Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology

The B.S. NEP degree track generally requires four semesters of undergraduate credits, plus one summer semester of 10 credits. This includes 64 credit hours in upper-division courses on the WSU Spokane campus. Additionally, students must complete the Junior Writing Portfolio and Senior Capstone course. The program requires application and admittance following completion of the pre-health professional track prerequisite coursework and the WSU general education requirements.

Graduates are able to seek the Certified Exercise Physiologist (EP-C) credential and other specialty certifications through the American College of Sports Medicine. They can pursue careers in healthcare, as well as continue to advanced graduate degrees and clinical training in the health sciences.

The program provides the foundational coursework necessary for application toward the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) exam, which is offered through the WSU Master of Science Coordinated Program in Dietetics, Nutrition and Exercise Physiology.
