Kinesiology and applied physiology is offered as a concentration within the professional science master's program described under Business and Science 137. The objective of the master of business and science degree with a concentration in kinesiology and applied physiology is to educate students about the systemic adaptations and responses to exercise and about applications of these principles in the health, fitness, biotechnological, nutraceutical, supplement, and wellness industries. Students will be taught about hormonal, biochemical, metabolic, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and psychological responses to exercise, exercise testing and prescription principles, and application of physical activity to an overall beneficial wellness profile. In order to prepare students to work in the various related health and fitness industries, such as supplement and nutraceutical development, fitness management and wellness program implementation, corporate fitness, personal training, and health/fitness biotechnology development, students will also be taught about management and planning, teamwork, communication, and proper financial decisions.
All students in kinesiology and applied physiology must take the following courses (13 credits) and the remaining 11 credits as electives:
16:572:501 Advanced Exercise Physiology (3)
16:572:503 Exercise Biochemistry (3)
16:572:506 Statistics and Research Design in Exercise Science (3)
16:572:502 Exercise Testing and Prescription (4)
16:572:520 Colloquium in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology (1)
