Graduate Programs

The Department of Health and Exercise Science offers two graduate degrees: a Master of Science degree and a Doctor of Philosophy degree (Human Bioenergetics). Our graduate programs emphasize the importance of physical activity and nutrition in creating health, preventing disease and deterioration, and in restoration of health and fitness. As part of our Master of Science program, we offer an optional specialization in Exercise Science and Nutrition (ESN), the details of which are contained within this website. We also offer a focus area within the CSU School of Public Health. Tracy Nelson is the contact person for practicum experiences in this program.
