Exercise science is the scientific study of how human movement influences health, fitness, performance and disease prevention. The Exercise and Nutrition Sciences program from  University at Buffalo, explores the complex relationship between the body, nutrients and health.


The Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences combines these disciplines to offer a broad understanding of the human body, including physiological, biomechanical and nutritional factors.


You will study and develop research skills in advanced exercise physiology on the Exercise and Nutrition Sciences program from University at Buffalo. Research focuses on how disease or injury alters the normal responses to exercise and, in turn, how exercise interacts with disease and injury.
