Exercise Science MS

The MS program in Exercise Science is supported with well-equipped research facilities, including three-dimensional video capabilities, electromyography, and force platforms, as well as equipment for measurement of cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary function, bone mineral density, body composition, functional muscular capacity, blood lactate, and motor unit discharge. Graduate students in this two-year program are expected to participate in ongoing faculty-directed research programs.

NOTE: The Clinical Exercise Physiology concentration provides students with the opportunity to develop an in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience in preventive and rehabilitative practices for patients with cardiopulmonary, metabolic, and musculoskeletal diseases as well as apparently healthy and low risk populations. The master’s degree will also help students prepare for the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM) certified clinical exercise physiologist certification, which focuses on cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation. The Clinical Exercise Physiology concentration is designed to be a 12-month, non-thesis professional degree program.
