The Master of Science with a major in Exercise Science requires 24 credits of coursework at the 600 or 800 level, and 6 credits of thesis. The 24 credits of coursework are specified in the individual planned programs of study, and must include 15-18 credits of coursework in courses within Exercise Science, and 6-9 credits of coursework in cognate areas as specified by the requirements for each concentration. A total of 30 credits is required to complete the degree.
Concentration: Motor Control
Motor control is an interdisciplinary science that focuses on neural, physical, and behavioral aspects of the development and regulation of human movement. Emphasis is placed on changes that occur across the lifespan or due to pathology, and adaptations that occur in response to motor learning or exercise training. Students in the MS program in Motor Control are required to conduct research and complete a thesis.
