Ouachita Baptist University will expand its kinesiology program to include a Master of Science degree in exercise science, expected to launch in fall 2023.
Housed in the Huckabee School of Education, the master’s degree program will be built around the concept of “Exercise is Medicine.” Ouachita holds the only gold status credential in the state for participation in the Exercise is Medicine program managed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
According to the ACSM website, Exercise is Medicine is a global health initiative to make physical activity assessment and promotion a standard in clinical care, connecting health care with evidence-based physical activity resources for people everywhere and of all abilities
