Exercise Physiology, Ph.D.


The doctoral program in exercise physiology provides students with advanced knowledge about the integrative physiological processes related to how exercise and lifestyle changes improve health and reduce risk factors for disease and disability. Special emphasis will be placed on recognizing and addressing health disparities.

The doctoral degree requires 60 credit hours that include focused required coursework, seminar, electives, and 18 dissertation credit hours. Prior to starting dissertation research, students are required to pass a qualifying exam in their fourth long semester after completing the program’s core courses. Details about the qualifying exam including examination topics can be found in the departmental graduate student handbook. All students will be reviewed annually for satisfactory progress that includes maintaining a B average and meeting agreed upon standards/expectations established by the student’s research mentor.
