Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Exercise Physiology
Description:The Exercise and Health Physiology (EXHP) program builds on the fundamental knowledge of human movement and function to focus on the impact that lifestyle, exercise and diet have on the human body, and how they affect hereditary and environmental disease. EXHP majors acquire the theoretical, practical and experiential foundations that explain how the body responds to acute exercise stress and chronic physical activity at the molecular, cellular, and systemic levels. Students also develop an understanding of acute and chronic changes that occur when training for high-performance sport, or while using fitness equipment, and apply this knowledge to diverse groups ranging from the inactive to elite athletes. Exercise and Health Physiologists grapple with questions related to basic human physiology such as, “What factors regulate bodily functions?” or “What sequence of events occur between the stimulus and the response in the regulatory process?” They then apply their findings to individual or team performance outcomes. Students may choose from a Bachelor of Kinesiology or a Bachelor of Science degree.
