The Exercise Physiology graduate program provides students with the specialized skills needed to work in either a clinical or research environment. The four-semester program leads to a Master of Science in Physiology of Exercise and is designed to prepare students to work as researchers in the field, or as preventative and rehabilitative specialists (as certified by the American College of Sports Medicine).
Students can choose between two concentrations: research and clinical. The research specialization is a two-year program that requires completing a master’s thesis. This track prepares students to work in an academic or research environment. A strong background in the sciences is recommended for admission into the program, including organic chemistry, physics, calculus, human anatomy and physiology and exercise physiology.
