The M.A./M.S. degree in health studies is designed to provide a research-oriented opportunity for students with a professional interest in physical activity and exercise. Students must complete each of the common required courses, along with a concentration of physical activity and exercise courses. Completion of a master’s thesis or project is also required.
Students applying to the M.A./M.S. degree program should have an undergraduate academic background in a health-related discipline. Previous coursework in the biological sciences may be helpful, depending upon the graduate academic plan of study that the student wishes to pursue.
