The basic sciences concentration prepares students to apply to graduate programs in areas such as exercise physiology (M.S. or Ph.D.), physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, and medical school.

To graduate, the student must have a USC System cumulative 3.0 GPA. Enrollment in EXSC458W, EXSC 459, and EXSC 499 requires a USC System cumulative 3.0 GPA. Following each semester where the student’s USC System cumulative GPA is below 3.0, the Exercise and Sports Science Chair will notify the student in writing. The completion of the degree requirements for the Exercise and Sports Science major with a concentration in Basic Sciences requires 126-128 total credit hours.
