Exercise Physiology Graduate Program
Our exercise physiology graduate program designed to prepare students for several professional avenues. Health and fitness practitioners work in environments such as fitness facilities and community centers/organizations. Strength and conditioning specialists work with athletes for performance enhancement on professional, intercollegiate, or secondary school athletic programs. Clinical physiologists facilitate medically supervised exercise programs for persons with chronic disease including cardiovascular or pulmonary disease. Graduates from the exercise physiology program have also gone on to pursue terminal doctoral degrees in the exercise sciences or used the master’s program as a launching point for admission into post-graduate allied health professions such as physician assistant, physical therapists, and medical school.
Our exercise physiology graduate program takes about two years to complete. Each student in the program is required to complete a minimum of 30 graduate credit hours.
Our exercise physiology graduate program also boasts a number of state-of-the-art research facilities including the Motion Analysis Center (MAC), the exercise science biochemistry laboratory, the human performance laboratory, and the environmental and therapeutic modality laboratory.
