About

The Exercise and Sport Science program at the Western State Colorado University is a two-year, residential program that takes full advantage of the unique physical and academic environment of Colorado’s Gunnison Valley.

Overview

The Exercise and Sport Science program at the Western State Colorado University repares students for careers in performance, academia, research or clinical practice, as well as for further study in the discipline. The High Altitude Exercise Physiology program aims to examine how the human body functions physiologically, both acutely and chronically, in extreme environments. 

These include–but are not limited to–high altitude, heat, cold and low humidity. Students in this program will complete at least 36 total credits, including six thesis credits. The thesis will be a culminating research project, to be completed during the last semester of the two-year program.

Program Goals

  • To enhance student understanding of human physiology – at rest and during exercise, in healthy and diseased populations – in extreme environments, including hyper- and hypobarometric conditions, heat, cold, pollution.
  • To prepare students for original research under supervision of the ESS-HAEP faculty.
  • To prepare students to share their research as presentations, publications or both.
  • To prepare students for careers in academia, research or clinical practice, as well as for further study in the discipline.

Student Outcomes

  • Research — HAEP Graduates will understand Exercise Science research methods and demonstrate the ability to recognize and employ various study designs. They will:
  • Be adept at retrieving and analyzing information relevant to Exercise Science.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the background and principle research in their specialization.
  • Demonstrate the ability to critically evaluate scientific literature and apply the scientific method to exercise sciences, by actively engaging in the research process with critical analysis and research.
  • Demonstrate the ability to situate their own research within the broader context of the Exercise Science field.
