Graduate Program

The Department of Human Physiology offers two graduate programs:

Research PhD Program –  The primary goal of this program is to provide classroom and research experiences that will allow students to grow into professionals with the knowledge and experience to be great researchers. Providing students with an in-depth understanding of human physiology and advanced research skills is our hallmark. The program also provides students the opportunity to grow as university-level educators.  This is an individualized program with a strong emphasis on research.

Important Update: We encourage applicants to our Research PhD program, either with or without a MS degree.  However, starting with the students enrolling in the fall of 2017, we will no longer be admitting students seeking a terminal Research MS degree.

Post-Professional Athletic Training Master’s Program –  Designed to facilitate the development of athletic training professionals with advanced clinical skills, who ask and seek answers to unique scholarly questions via original research as they integrate new knowledge into their evolving clinical philosophy. The result is clinicians who self-assess, critically evaluate new ideas, think creatively, and integrate scientific evidence into clinical practice.
