Exercise & Sport Science

Master of Science in Physical Education with an option in Exercise and Sport Science

 The Exercise and Sport Science option recognizes the diverse nature of the discipline and permits the student maximum flexibility in studying areas of personal interest or for career enhancement. It also allows professionals already in the field to complete the Master of Science degree at their own pace and within the limitations of their personal work schedule. In this option, students design their program of study with the Graduate Coordinator, emphasizing physical education, sport, or exercise and wellness themes. A thesis for students planning to matriculate to a doctoral program is also available as an option. Summer courses are available as well as evening courses during Fall and Spring semesters.
