What will I learn?

The Kinesiology Department's Graduate Program in Exercise Science is a research-based program where graduate students can refine their research skills while learning about the effects of exercise on health and well-being. Our graduate program provides opportunities for potential graduate students to work and learn in an exercise science research laboratory or the public schools as a physical educator.

The program of study leading to the Master of Science (MS) in Exercise Science is designed to accomplish two major objectives:

  • 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.
  • 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.
