Department Information

The Department of Applied Physiology and Wellness offers both undergraduate and graduate programs. Its undergraduate programs include a major and four minors in applied physiology and sport management. Its graduate programs include a Master of Science in Health Promotion Management, a Master of Science in Sport Management, and a Ph.D. in education with an emphasis in applied physiology. The department also offers personal responsibility and wellness (PRW) courses, two of which are required of all undergraduate students as part of the University Curriculum, and a large selection of sports and fitness activity courses available as electives. The undergraduate and graduate programs have access to the department’s laboratories, which include an integrated physiology laboratory, an applied physiology laboratory equipped with a data acquisition system, an environmental research chamber with teaching pods, and a cerebrovascular research lab. The Locomotor Performance Laboratory specializes in terrestrial locomotion and in relating muscle function to metabolic energy expenditure and performance.

Doctor of Philosophy in Education. The Ph.D. in education is a schoolwide degree. Currently three areas of emphasis are available within this degree: teaching and learning, education policy and leadership, and applied physiology. For more information on this degree, students should see the description of the Ph.D. program at or in this catalog.
