Department Information

The Department of Applied Physiology and Sport Management 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 sports and fitness activity courses available as electives. The undergraduate and graduate programs have access to the department’s three laboratories, which include the Applied Physiology Laboratory (research/teaching space equipped with an environmental chamber, force plates, and teaching pods); the Integrated Physiology Laboratory (specializes in the study of autonomic function in health and disease with a focus on individuals living with multiple sclerosis); and the Locomotor Performance Laboratory (specializes in the study of terrestrial locomotion by examining the relationship between muscle function and metabolic energy expenditure and performance).

Doctor of Philosophy in Education. The Simmons Ph.D. in education is a school-wide degree that allows doctoral students to focus their studies in select areas, including applied physiology. For more information on this degree, students should see the description of the Ph.D. program at www.smu.edu/EducationPhD or in this catalog.
