I chose Cedar Crest for my Exercise Science master’s degree for multiple reasons: It's
the perfect location- being near two major health networks gave us tons of experience
and networking opportunities; the flexible schedule allowed me to work while also
completing my degree requirements; and the program's design- most exercise science
graduate programs that I investigated only offered a clinical or research focus, but not
the integration of both. I was excited for both the clinical experiences and the
opportunity to conduct research with the completion of a master’s thesis all in one
program! Cedar Crest's program made me feel confident in my knowledge and ability
to work with anyone who comes to the fitness center to exercise."

Empowerment, excellence, and advocacy.
Cedar Crest College has a long tradition of providing education and aid to the underserved. More than 150 years ago, nine young women gathered in a basement to pursue higher learning at a time when educational opportunities for women were rare.
Since that time, the school has maintained its dedication to empowerment through education as an undergraduate women’s college, while expanding its medical, adult, and graduate educational programs into co-ed experiences.
Situated in the heart of Lehigh Valley, PA, a thriving area with multitudes of experiential options — both for your clinical experiences and for your social life. Magnet hospitals. Assisted living centers. Outpatient clinics.
Plus, it's a foodie’s paradise. Concerts. Robust art scene. Still want more? We’re just a hop, skip and a jump from Philly. NYC. Washington D.C. The beach. The mountains. They say location is everything, and Lehigh Valley has it all.
At Cedar Crest, you’ll be surrounded by highly experienced, supportive faculty and fellow students who are driven to influence positive change in the lives of others.
