Exercise and Sport Sciences
Academic Adviser: G. A. Sforzo, Chair of Graduate Program, email@example.com
The School of Health Sciences and Human Performance offers a master of science degree program in exercise and sport sciences with concentrations in exercise physiology, physical education, and sport psychology. Thesis and non-thesis plans within the three areas allow students to match their learning experiences to individual academic strengths and career plans. A small student body and knowledgeable, interested faculty enhance program individualization, as does the opportunity to take courses at nearby Cornell University and to pursue independent study.
Admission to these programs is granted on the basis of cumulative undergraduate grade point average, Graduate Record Examination scores, and recommendations. To be considered for admission, applicants must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution. Consideration is given to those applicants whose academic preparation most closely aligns with their intended area of concentration (i.e., exercise physiology, physical education, or sport psychology). Applicants for concentrations in exercise physiology and physical education usually have undergraduate degrees in areas such as exercise science, physical education, athletic training, nursing, or biology. For the sport psychology concentration, students usually have undergraduate degrees in conceptually related content that emphasizes psychology.
Applications are reviewed on an individual basis, taking into account such factors as previous academic achievements, successful professional experience, and special personal circumstances. Applicants who have questions regarding their eligibility for admission are encouraged to contact the chair of the program (firstname.lastname@example.org, 607-274-3359).
