This Master of Science degree program is designed to teach students about human movement, exercise physiology, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, sport psychology, and biomechanics. It is designed for students who want to work in these fields, advance their knowledge beyond their undergraduate education, perhaps to prepare for study at the doctoral level.
- Exercise Science and Rehabilitation
- Sport Science
Applicants must offer at least one undergraduate course in each of the following: human physiology, human anatomy, physiology of exercise, and biomechanics. A course in physics and a course in chemistry are recommended. Competitive applicants typically have undergraduate degrees in Exercise Science or Physical Education. Other degrees may also provide appropriate educational background (i.e. Physical Therapy, Athletic Training, etc). Students must also demonstrate proficiency in basic techniques of weightlifting and body conditioning. This may be done by completion of a course in the subject, appropriate certification by a nationally recognized organization (e.g., NSCA), or proof of at least one year of practical experience in the field.
Applicants who meet the general matriculation requirements of the college may be accepted for matriculation conditionally. A graduate student may meet such matriculation conditions by completing appropriate courses in the Brooklyn College undergraduate division.
Applicants must have a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 3.00. A minimum average of 3.00 in graduate courses is required to maintain matriculation.
International applicants for whom English is a second language are required to pass the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum score of 550 on the paper-based test or 213 on the computer-based test or 79 on the internet-based test, before being considered for admission.
