Master of Science in the Physiology of Exercise

The exercise physiology graduate program provides students with the specialized skills needed to work in either a clinical or research environment. Students can choose between two programs: research or clinical.

The research program 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.

The clinical program is a four-semester program (typically starting and ending in the summer) that leads to a Master of Science in Physiology of Exercise. It is designed to prepare students to work as researchers in the field, or as preventive and rehabilitative specialists (as certified by the American College of Sports Medicine).
