Students may pursue an MSE in Exercise Science, housed jointly within the School of Education and Counseling and the Department of Health, Human Performance, and Sport (HHPS). Graduate study in HHPS is designed to enhance the HHPS teaching techniques and to enable the recipient of the MSE degree to:

  1. achieve new and broadened academic competencies through course work.
  2. achieve more effective teaching techniques through methodology courses.
  3. develop competencies in research.
  4. provide professional and academic training for those desiring to teach or administer in HHPS programs at the post secondary level.
  5. understand the impact of science and its relationship to success in HHPS.
