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).

Announcing a New Program 

Master of Science in Exercise Physiology - Human Performance

The Master's program uniquely prepares you for the professional workforce in a summer-to-summer, 34 hour program (three semester on campus, one semester off campus).  The curriculum provides coursework that is specific to human performance and the on-campus practicum opportunities serve as a platform to transfer the knowledge from the classroom into meaningful application .
