The School of Biological and Population Health Sciences offers graduate programs in the theoretical and practical study of physical activity (including exercise and sport) for the promotion of optimal health and disease prevention.

Areas of Concentration

Applications for the Master of Science (M.S.) degree will not be considered this year in Exercise and Sport Science across the different areas of concentration. The one exception is the M.S. in Movement Studies in Disability. Please submit applications at the master’s level only if you are interested in a M.S. in Movement Studies in Disability. Note that we will continue to review applications for the doctoral program across all areas of concentration.

We are excited to be in the process of developing several new professionally-oriented degrees at the master’s level. Refer to the Physical Education Teacher Education and Athletic Training sites for updates on some of these initiatives. We will post more information on master’s degree options available for applicants interested in applying next year as details become available.
