Program overview

The MSc in Health and Exercise Science builds on the strengths of our undergraduate programs, looking at the mechanistic sciences and how the body works. Areas of specialization include the clinical areas of injury prevention, and the chronic care of certain diseases through exercise. Researchers in the department are asking important questions, from how the body produces new muscle proteins to how stress can influence the cardiovascular system. All of the program's courses are research-based in one way or another. Join a passionate student cohort in the booming field of Exercise Science.
