Our graduate program provides opportunities for potential graduate students to work and learn in an exercise science research laboratory or the public schools as a physical educator.

The program of study leading to the Master of Science (MS) in Exercise Science at the University of Texas Arlington is designed to accomplish two major objectives:

  • To provide students with the academic and research skills needed for doctoral study in athletic training, biomechanics, motor learning, physiology of exercise, postural control, or as a physical educator.
  • To prepare students for employment in clinically-oriented environments that place an emphasis on research, such as cardiac rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, or sports medicine, or to work in the public schools as a physical educator.

Current departmental faculty members have been academically trained in, and are actively publishing in, the areas of physiology of exercise, postural control, athletic training, biomechanics, cardiovascular physiology, pulmonary physiology, pedagogy, motor learning, and the general areas of allied health sciences. The ongoing research in these areas provides the primary focus for the M.S. program. Program graduates will be well prepared to work as researchers in laboratories and to enroll in doctoral programs in these content areas.
