The Master of Science in Exercise and Nutrition Science (M.S.-ENS) prepares students to work in government, business, the sports industry, and in education as practitioners on professional interdisciplinary teams. The program is for students seeking a strong foundation for further study and research including those pursuing a terminal degree.
The program offers three entry points throughout the academic year (spring, summer, and fall semester), and courses are scheduled to allow an efficient timeline to degree completion for full-time students. Students are provided experiential learning opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. The program helps to prepare for certification exams including the Certified Sports Nutritionist (CISSN) and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) examinations, the premier certifications in strength and conditioning, and sports nutrition, upon graduation if they choose to pursue certification.
Converging Exercise and Nutrition Sciences Like Never Before
Most university programs segregate the study of exercise and nutrition sciences. The goal of UT’s M.S.-ENS is to examine the relationship between the two fields as it relates to optimizing athletic performance and/or clinical exercise physiology. The program combines advanced concepts from exercise physiology and strength and conditioning to teach students how nutrition can impact each area. Through numerous hands-on experiences and rigorous classroom study, students gain an unparalleled awareness of the intersection of these sciences.
Learning by Doing
M.S.-ENS students “learn by doing” through performance-based programming, which prepares practitioners to work with a wide variety of athletes. The department’s advanced labs and technology help students prepare for the real world. UT’s relationships with numerous local athletic teams allow students to put their theories to test. UT faculty and students have also conducted extensive research with companies that are involved in exercise and nutrition/supplementation. These collaborations give students an insider’s view of the industry and provide a strong network for post-graduation jobs.
Based on the rigor and innovation of the M.S.-ENS program, the International Society of Sports Nutrition recognized it as the first graduate program in Florida to offer approved coursework for preparation for the CISSN examination.
