A general, science-based curriculum provides the foundation for this 33 credit hour Graduate program. However, the curriculum is designed with 6-9 credit hours of electives, allowing the student to focus on his/her specific academic interest within the field. Typical areas of concentration include Exercise Science, and Curriculum and Instruction. Classroom and laboratory experiences are designed to provide the student with an applied understanding of the scientific basis of exercise/training in different populations.

The program offers two paths towards a Master’s degree. Each includes a minimum of 33 credit hours.

M.Ed.: (non-thesis) Admission to this track requires scores from either the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
