Pursue study of a specialized focus within the body of knowledge underlying Exercise Science.

Graduate students garner advanced experience in the Exercise Science sub-disciplines of Exercise Physiology, Biomechanics, Sport Nutrition, Strength & Conditioning & Sport Psychology within our excellent facilities at East Stroudsburg University.

The program is a blend of theory, laboratory-based experiences and practical opportunities to ensure mastery and a competitive edge in career mobility.

Students can choose from two options within the MS Exercise Science: the thesis option or the internship option.

  • In the thesis option students will gain experience in the design and implementation of research within the field of Exercise Science, culminating in a written thesis that is subject to faculty review. The final product is often presented at national professional conferences and submitted for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
  • In the internship option students will gain extensive professional experience in a work environment under the supervision of faculty and credentialed seasoned professional in an area allied to Exercise Science.

Students can also select fall or spring admission to the program depending upon their specific needs.
