The mission of the Exercise Science Graduate Program
is to promote fitness, wellness, and optimal human
performance through teaching, research, and service
in the exercise sciences.
The Program seeks to advance the exercise science
disciplines through discovery and dispersion of health-
and exercise-related knowledge. A critical aspect of
these efforts is to provide students with the knowledge
and skills for advanced study of careers in the
exercise science-related fields, and to develop
graduates who are self-reflective professionals and
Students pursuing the M.S. in Exercise Science choose
either a thesis or non-thesis option in one of two
degree concentrations: Fitness and Wellness (FW), or Human Performance (HP). The diverse two-track curriculum can provide the students with multiple career opportunities as well as prepare students for doctoral work in one of the specific exercise science disciplines, particularly if the thesis option is selected.
