Integrative Human Physiology, MS

The master of science degree in Integrative Human Physiology integrates knowledge from multiple sciences including anatomy, physiology, physics-mechanics, biochemistry-metabolism, exercise physiology, nutrition, and statistics to advance understanding of human function under a variety of stimuli. Stimuli include human movement, disease, aging environmental stressors, physical injuries, and ergogenic aids. The program prepares students for further study at the doctoral or professional level, careers in higher education, clinical settings, corporate and community fitness/wellness centers and athletic development programs. Prospective candidates holding a degree in a relevant major, including physiology, exercise physiology, biology, exercise science, biomechanics, chemistry, nutrition, or health sciences, are encouraged to apply. Courses encompassing anatomy, physiology, physics, biomechanics, exercise physiology, kinesiology, biology, chemistry, statistics, and nutrition are strongly recommended at the undergraduate level. A scientific writing example, per department requirements, for students pursuing the research option.
