Exercise Physiology

The Master of Science concentration in Exercise Physiology is designed to prepare students for advanced study (e.g., PhD) and/or for careers in biomedical research or other health and fitness related fields.  The curriculum affords students to the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of integrative physiology and to gain hands-on experience with fundamental and advanced laboratory techniques. Students are expected to supplement the curriculum by assisting and directing research projects.
