The MS in Exercise Science consists of a minimum 35-credit thesis program structured to provide students with advanced study across specialized disciplines such as Exercise Physiology, Biomechanics and Sport Psychology.
In the Exercise Science Department, graduate students experience the Exercise Science sub-disciplines of Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics within our excellent facilities at East Stroudsburg University.
Students will be involved in the design, implementation and evaluation of research within the field of Exercise Science, culminating in a written thesis that is subjected to a faculty review (see course sequence).
Certification by the National Institutes of Health on completion of the course 'Human Participants Protection Education for Research Teams' will be required of all students within this program.
Opportunities to gain experience in a work environment exist through the internships offered as part of the Masters Degree in Exercise Science.
Graduation from this program will provide the student with the professional preparation for credentialing from organizations including the American College of Sports Medicine (ASCM) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and/or to pursue more advanced study (doctoral degree) or a career in exercise science research.
