Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

As one of only a few schools of public health with a Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences, we give students the opportunity to learn not only how exercise, physical activity and nutrition affect the individual, but also how they impact the health and function of communities at large. We provide our students with research and practice opportunities in settings as diverse as the National Institutes of Health, professional sports team, the US Department of Agriculture, the Pentagon, and the Washington, DC public school system. Whether your career goal is to influence public health policy, to train elite athletes, or to become a health care provider, we can get you there.
