There is some overlap between the career opportunities for the two subjects. However, after getting a degree in exercise science, graduates can choose a career path in fields such as teaching, nutrition, therapy, coaching and research. A physical education degree usually leads to teaching PE or coaching.

In a certain sense, Sports and Exercise Science graduates are likely to have more of an opportunity to work with the community on a broader scale (e.g., research related to the field, or consulting work to create healthier communities). Physical Education graduates are more likely to work with people more closely.

Hope this helps,
