The purpose of the MS in Exercise Physiology is to prepare students for a wide variety of career options within the field of exercise physiology including exercise prescription and research as well as doctoral study.
In addition to a baccalaureate degree applicants are expected to have substantial preparation in the sciences which usually includes coursework in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, anatomy, biomechanics, and exercise physiology. Evaluation of requisite coursework is made at the time of admission to the Concentration. A limited number of deficiencies may be completed while enrolled as a graduate student, but these will not count toward completion of the MS degree. All applicants must present Graduate Record Examination results before the application process can be completed.
