Best Exercise Science Program Badge

Exercise science program ranked 9th in the nation

UW-Eau Claire was proud to be ranked as having the 9th best exercise science bachelor's degree program by BestHealthDegrees.com. Programs are ranked according to price, accreditation, reputation, and salary potential, using data from IPEDS and Niche, U.S. News and World Report, and other higher education rating publications.

UW-Eau Claire was the country’s only top 10 kinesiology program from Wisconsin. 

I love being a Blugold because from the minute I started my freshman year, the Eau Claire campus felt like home! The professors here at UWEC want students to succeed, and I have felt supported and challenged to be the best student I can be. There are so many opportunities being a Blugold has to offer, and I have taken full advantage of them — studying abroad, becoming an RA, and volunteering as a campus ambassador.
