Sport and Exercise Science
Students in our Master of Science with a major in Sport and Exercise Science program receive advanced training in human performance consisting of knowledge, skills and abilities in biomechanics, nutrition, psychology and physiology. Additionally, students have the opportunity to choose either a thesis or a non-thesis option. In the thesis option, students complete 30 credits of coursework as well as 6 credits of research-based scientific study that will prepare them both for midlevel employment in the field and also entrance into doctoral programs should they choose to continue their education beyond the master level. In the non thesis option, students complete 30 credits of coursework followed by 6 credits of an academic-year-long internship, many with one of the University’s athletic teams.
