The graduate programs in Nutrition, Exercise, and Health Sciences are designed to provide knowledge and expertise for students intending to pursue higher level graduate study in doctoral or professional programs, seeking a terminal degree for entry-level positions in a variety of private and public settings, as well as for positions at community college and other tertiary levels. Human functioning is the overriding theme of all curricula offerings. The master of science degrees offered by NEHS require completion of a minimum of 45 credits as outlined in an approved course of study filed with the Office of Graduate Studies and Research. The course of study is structured in consultation with the student’s academic advisor and is approved by the department graduate program director. The specifics on the course of study depend on the degree program, and include both required and advisor approved elective courses.
Applicants must first meet the general requirements for graduate study as determined by the Office of Graduate Studies and Research, and then the specific requirements of their selected program within the Department of Nutrition, Exercise, and Health Sciences (see individual programs). Conditional or probationary admission may be granted in certain circumstances.
The master of science degree in Exercise Science prepares students for further study at the doctoral or professional level, careers in higher education, clinical settings, and sport sciences. Prospective candidates holding a degree in a relevant major including exercise science, biology, chemistry, nutrition, or in the health sciences are encouraged to apply. Courses encompassing anatomy, physiology, exercise physiology, kinesiology, mechanics, biology, chemistry, statistics and nutrition are strongly recommended at the undergraduate level. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and a scientific writing example, per department requirements, are required.
