Goals and Course Topics
Exercise physiology involves using exercise to help people improve physical and mental health and fitness, prevent or treat chronic diseases and disabilities, and guide athletes and others in athletics and sports training. Tiffin University’s Master of Science (MS) in Clinical Exercise Physiology prepares you for a career in this fascinating field, which is expanding rapidly, in part, because of America’s aging population. Exercise physiology jobs are expected to grow 10% faster than all other occupations, on average, in the next eight years.
YOUR CLINICAL EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY PROGRAM
TU’s exercise physiology program is an in-depth exploration of a broad range of topics. Students learn about the impact of exercise on the body, psychosocial factors that influence health, how medications affect exercise therapies and how recommended medical dietary and nutritional changes can improve exercise capability. An MS degree in TU’s new Allied Health field ideally positions students to compete effectively in the growing exercise physiology profession. It is an in-person program with some online components.
The best education programs link knowledge to professional practice to prepare students to succeed in the real world. In addition to faculty members with advanced exercise physiology expertise, TU recently invested in a new Exercise Science Lab to give students valuable hands-on practice. The MS in Clinical Exercise Physiology program also offers opportunities to earn certifications as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist from the American College of Sports Medicine and as a Certified Special Populations Specialist from the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Students will have the ability to earn these certifications as part of the required program curriculum.
Students who earn MS degrees in clinical exercise physiology enjoy a wide range of career options in private, corporate and public health settings, as well as prerequisites for future doctoral study.
