The HPER Graduate Program exists to provide post-baccalaureate study opportunities
leading to a Master of Science degree in Health, Physical Education and Recreation. The program provides two areas of emphasis: 1) sports science and 2) sports pedagogy. The sports science program is designed to prepare students for competencies in areas of cardiac, pulmonary and muscle physiology, clinical exercise physiology, and strength and conditioning. Research and clinical experience are coordinated through the Applied
Physiology Laboratory. The sports pedagogy program is designed to provide students with opportunities to prepare for careers as athletic directors or in athletic administration and associated fields of sports information/marketing, or to improve their knowledge and
expertise as coaches and teachers in leadership positions. The goal of the program is to
provide students with knowledge and experiences which will make them better professionals or which will prepare them for advanced study at the doctoral level.
