EASTERN and Montgomery County Community College Partner on College Credit Agreement for new EASTERN Program – Exercise Science and Rehabilitation

Montgomery County Community College (MCCC) and Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN), signed an articulation agreement, allowing students from EASTERN’s newest program, Exercise Science and Rehabilitation, to earn up to 8 credits as part of the MCCC’s Exercise Science and Wellness Associate of Science program. 

A grade of a B or better in EASTERN’s Exercise Science and Rehabilitation could potentially earn two credits for ESW 146: Conditioning, Weight Training, and Weight Control; three credits for ESW 245: Safety and First Aid; and three credits for ESW 215: Prevention and Care of Athletic Injury. The student will also need to meet additional MCCC criteria, such as certification by the secondary school teacher, demonstration/performance, and an entrance exam.

MCCC’s Exercise Science and Wellness Associate of Science degree includes exercise science, exercise physiology, kinesiology, pre-physical therapy, pre-occupational therapy, physical education, pre-athletic training, strength and conditioning, health, nutrition, and sport, fitness, recreational management, and more.

"Montgomery County Community College has been an incredible partner to EASTERN,” said Joe Greb, EASTERN’s Assistant Director. “We have worked together for many years to offer articulation college credit and dual enrollment credits to our students. Our partnership has provided a seamless transition to postsecondary for many EASTERN students – and it is wonderful to be able to continue and grow this partnership with our latest articulation agreement for our new Exercise Science and Rehabilitation program.”

Turn your love of exercise, training, and wellness into an exciting and lucrative career! EASTERN’s newest program, Exercise Science and Rehabilitation, will provide an in-depth look at the many career opportunities in this field, learn how to treat sports-related injuries, and provide personal training. This program will involve studying the body under physical stress such through exercise, physical sports, or occupational therapy. This helps physical therapists, coaches, and trainers ensure the safety and health of their patients and clients.  For more information, please visit
