Что я буду изучать?

Research in Exercise Science is booming. Researchers in the department are asking important fundamental and clinical questions, from how the body produces new muscle proteins to face challenges to how stress can influence the cardiovascular system. In continuation with the strengths of our undergraduate programs, our research agenda is strong in basic mechanistic sciences to understand how the body works, in the clinical areas of injury prevention and care, and in the chronic care of certain diseases through exercise.

Requirements for the Degree:

Credits. A fully qualified candidate is required to complete a minimum of 45 credits.

Residence. The minimum residence requirement is one year (three terms) of full-time study, or the equivalent in part-time study.

Courses. Students must complete four 3-credit courses (EXCI 610, 612, 624, 626).

Thesis. (EXCI 680 or EXCI 690 - 33 credits). Students must select either the Athletic Therapy (EXCI 680) or Clinical Exercise Physiology (EXCI 690) Thesis track. Students must present their thesis proposal before their thesis advisory committee, and the proposal must be approved by the committee before research activity is initiated. An oral examination will be conducted before a committee of the department to test the student’s ability to defend the thesis. A formal presentation of the thesis to the students’ peers is also required.


Research in the department probes functional mechanisms from the molecular level to whole systems. Topics include:

  • injury prevention through neuromuscular control, joint stabilization, bracing, and flexibility.
  • physiological mechanisms of the control of blood flow and body temperature.
  • movement and balance control in neuromuscular disorders.
  • cellular and molecular adaptations to neuromuscular activity.
  • neural control of movement.
  • nutrition, hormones, and body composition.
  • behavioral medicine and chronic illnesses.
  • clinical and fundamental research on pain.

Вступительные требования

Для студентов, проживающих в Соединенных Штатах

Applicants may required to have a 4 year Bachelor Degree. Other English language requirements: TOEFL (paper-based) score 577 or higher; MELAB min. score: 85, 3 on speaking test; CAEL min. score: 70; CAE min. score: A; CPE (advanced qualification for proficient users only) min. score: C.

Для иностранных студентов

The admission requirement is a BSc or equivalent degree in Exercise Science or related field of study. Applicants are selected on the basis of past academic record, letters of recommendation, relevance of proposed research to the expertise of the department.

If a core deficiency exists in the student’s previous undergraduate background, otherwise qualified candidates may be required to take up to 12 undergraduate credits.

There are no prerequisite certification requirements for Clinical Exercise Physiology. Students applying for the Athletic Therapy option should have or be preparing to acquire CATA certification. While not required, CATA certification is an asset for acceptance into the program.
