Master of Science in Kinesiology (Emphasis in Exercise Physiology)

Graduate courses in the Department of Kinesiology are designed to provide qualified individuals with the opportunity to pursue advanced study beyond the baccalaureate level. Biomechanics, exercise physiology, biochemistry, and motor behavior/pedagogy laboratories have been dedicated specifically for teaching and research. 

Pre-Requisites

  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Exercise Physiology
  • Advanced Exercise Physiology

Pre-requisite courses may be taken during the program but will not be counted toward the degree.
