Master of Science in Exercise Science (M.S.)

Bloomsburg University's exercise science master's degree program prepares students for research opportunities, doctoral study and employment in universities, cardiac rehabilitation, corporate fitness and wellness, sports medicine, and pediatric/geriatric fitness. Students complete graduate level courses in exercise science with clinical and research internships that encompass the full spectrum of health, including:

  • cardiac rehabilitation
  • physiological assessment
  • training for optimal performance

These activities are augmented by such learning recourses as library support, information technology and well-equipped exercise physiology, biomechanics, and computer laboratories in Centennial Hall — the home of the Department of Exercise Science.
