The Master of Science in applied health physiology is a professional degree program designed to prepare leaders in the fields of health care/wellness or fitness. The program offers three possible areas of focus: cardiovascular/ pulmonary rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, and fitness/wellness. The program provides academic preparation for students seeking certification by the American College of Sports Medicine as exercise physiologists or by the National Strength and Conditioning Association as certified strength and conditioning specialists (CSCS).

The academic coursework prepares students for careers in health care settings such as hospitals, youth and geriatric centers, state and local health departments, corporate wellness programs, personal trainers, and strength and conditioning coaches for sports teams. The academic and clinical faculty members provide multiple opportunities for hands-on experience in addition to traditional classroom interactions.
