Program Information

Thesis Option

The M.S. thesis option requires a minimum of 33 hours of course work, which includes six credits devoted to completion of the thesis. Students in this option are required to actively participate in all phases of research within the laboratory. The thesis program requires two full years of study including the summer between the first and second years. To complete the M.S. in Exercise Physiology, a minimum of 23 hours must be at the 600 level or above
