The MS in Exercise Science is a research-based program that allows students to refine their research skills while learning about the effects of exercise on health and well-being. The program is designed to accomplish two major objectives- (1).To provide students with the academic and research skills needed for doctoral study in athletic training, biomechanics, motor learning, physiology of exercise, postural control, or as a physical educator and (2) to prepare students for employment in clinically-oriented environments that place an emphasis on research, such as cardiac rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, or sports medicine, or to work in the public schools as a physical educator.
Graduates of the program are well prepared to work as researchers in laboratories and to enroll in doctoral programs in these content areas.
