WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
The online program is designed to facilitate a comprehensive learning experience for post undergraduate professionals that is conducive to their work-life schedule. Whether clinical-based practitioners or fitness/strength and conditioning practitioners, our goal is to provide students with an in-depth understanding of how to design, analyze and apply research in the field of exercise science. Additionally, students will gain the knowledge, skills and abilities to secure the highest level of certification in their respective expertise.
The combination of classes and the integration of research throughout the program will provide students with the following benefits:
Exercise science practitioners are employed in a wide variety of positions ranging from those who are primarily clinical-based and work in hospitals, wellness and therapy-type settings to those who focus on physical fitness and strength and conditioning. A major focus of the MSES is to provide students, regardless of specialty, with a cumulative experience by preparing them for two different certifications (clinicians and strength and conditioning coaches) that are highly desirable in the field.
