Master of Science in Exercise Science

The Department of Exercise Science, Health Studies, Physical Education and Sport Management offers a graduate program leading to a Master of Science degree in Exercise Science. The program prepares students to work with a wide variety of populations from high level athletes to people who are diagnosed with health problems including cardiovascular, pulmonary, neurological, orthopedic and metabolic disease.

Graduates of the Exercise Science Program go on to careers in clinical exercise physiology, cardiac rehabilitation, personal training, and strength and conditioning. Some pursue doctoral degrees in allied health, medicine, and exercise physiology. Candidates for admission to the Exercise Science Program must possess a four year undergraduate degree and have completed the following pre-requisite courses: Human Anatomy and Physiology (8 credits, to include labs), Exercise Physiology (with lab) and Kinesiology. An interview may be required. The program requires 36 credits and may be taken on a full-time or part-time basis. Learning objectives for the American College of Sports Medicine Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist certification are included in the course work. Degree candidates must maintain a minimum of a 3.0 GPA.
