Prospective Student Opportunities


The University of Toledo offers a variety of opportunities for prospective students to take part in graduate-level research through the MAIN Lab. Specifically, UT offers several academic programs within the Department of Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences, including the PhD in Exercise Science program and combined DPT/PhD track.

PhD in Exercise Science

The Doctor of Philosophy in Exercise Science Program is designed to provide qualified applicants with an opportunity to pursue advanced study, and engage in high-quality research relevant to a wide range of disciplines in exercise science, leading to the completion of a PhD degree. PhD students are required to accumulate a minimum of 72 credit hours (9 credit hours/semester). This program involves a variety of courses and independent research experiences, and typically requires four years of full-time study to complete. PhD students work closely with a faculty mentor to design a program that is consistent with the mentor's research focus and that meets the unique needs of the student. Interested students must contact the faculty member in their intended research area before submitting an application. Additional information about this program can be found at: For additional information about available PhD assistantships, please visit: the Doctoral Teaching Assistantship position description
