Please review the pre-requisites for the Master of Science in Exercise and Sport Science.
The M.S. in Exercise and Sport Science requires a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in a health-related field such as public health; health education/health promotion; exercise science/kinesiology; human performance; human nutrition; biomechanics; or closely related field.
If you have a bachelor’s degree in a science field, but one that is not considered a direct healthcare profession (e.g., biology, biomedical sciences, etc.) or a non-science degree from fields such as health communications, healthcare administration, psychology/sociology, human development, education, or other field, you may be required to take additional undergraduate courses prior to enrolling or while concurrently taking courses in the graduate program, as follows.
- Anatomy and Physiology I & II (with laboratories)
- Exercise Physiology
Prerequisite coursework can be taken at any accredited college/university, including Merrimack College.
