Tradition. Excellence. Relevance.
A long heritage characterized by adaptability and flexibility describes Ithaca College’s master’s degree program in exercise and sport sciences. The program’s emphasis on theoretical knowledge and practical application prepare students with diverse academic backgrounds for a variety of careers in the field.
Graduate students can choose one of three concentrations:

Whether a student’s primary orientation is practical or theoretical—each focus offers a thesis plan and a non-thesis plan. And students are assigned academic advisers who help customize each program to meet a variety of personal goals and ambitions.
Housed in the Center for Health Sciences, the graduate program in exercise and sport sciences is equipped with the finest learning, diagnostic, and laboratory equipment. Between its state-of-the-art wellness clinic and other lab facilities, Ithaca College can accommodate virtually any research project.
