The Master of Science with a major in Applied Exercise and Health Science (AEHS) is a 36 semester hour graduate study program in Kinesiology. 


Majors select a concentration area in either Exercise Physiology or Sport Management. Exercise Physiology students focus on the physiological responses/adaptations to exercise through laboratory-based activities and exposure to research investigation. Sport Management students focus on sport and the sport industry through the study of managerial principles and participating in applied experiences to prepare for careers in the sport, recreation, and fitness industries. Also, the program features a choice among three capstone experiences: 1) Administrative Field Experience, 2) Master's Project, or 3) Master's Thesis.

The program is delivered in a new state-of-the-art Health Sciences building that provides study areas, computer labs, a graduate lounge, and private group meeting areas for students. There is a 6,250 square foot Exercise Science laboratory complex which includes a Biomechanics lab, Exercise Physiology lab (instructional area and four independent research spaces), Psychophysiology lab, and research offices. Graduate Assistantship opportunities are available but competitive. Graduate Assistants work with individual faculty members in research labs or assist with course instruction.
