BU's exercise science master's degree 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 the recently renovated Centennial Hall — the home of the Department of Exercise Science.
