MS in Exercise Science Curriculum

Effective Fall 2022, all students take 21 hours of an Exercise Physiology concentration, electives (3-6 hours), and conclude with a capstone experience (3-9 hours).  The curriculum is designed to be flexible to meet the unique career goals of students. The program focuses on the physiological responses/adaptations to exercise through laboratory-based activities and exposure to research investigation.
