The Masters of Science in Exercise Science program at the University of Montevallo provides advanced academic training in exercise science with a special emphasis on nutrition and strength and conditioning. Our highly qualified faculty, premier laboratory equipment, small class size, and opportunities for applied practice offer students an exceptional graduate experience. Students who complete their degree are prepared for careers of distinction in the many fields of exercise science and strength and conditioning.

Candidates with less than the recommended GPA or test score may be admitted based upon a sliding scale which specifies particular grade point averages and corresponding admission requirements. *Prerequisite course work may be required of candidates that have not completed any exercise science courses. Contact the Office of Graduate Studies by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for complete.
Note: The admissions process is competitive and applicants that meet the requirements described above are not guaranteed admission. Prerequisite undergraduate course work may be required.
Program Completion Options
Students will be able to choose between an internship experience coupled with comprehensive exams or a thesis to complete their graduate work. The thesis will require 6 credit hours of study, while the internship will carry a 3 hour credit. It is our intention to assign 90 contact hours to the internship experience (30 contact hours per credit hour) at a program-approved internship location.
