Exercise Science, M.S. - Human Performance

The Human Performance concentration of our graduate program in Exercise Science provides the student opportunity for advanced study in a wide variety of the exercise sciences including: advanced exercise physiology, advanced strength and conditioning, biomechanics & applied kinesiology, cardiac rehabilitation, laboratory techniques in exercise testing & prescription, exercise prescription for diverse populations, and more. As one of two accredited graduate programs in the New England, our students work closely with our faculty in the classroom or in conjunction with one of our ongoing research projects.

Our program is one of the most affordable in New England, and we offer a limited number of graduate assistantships to qualified students. Students complete 30 graduate credits to earn this degree. The program includes a thesis and non-thesis option.

For those students who are interested, please contact the MS Exercise Science - coordinator, Dr. Robert Axtell axtellr1@southernct.edu.
