Offered by the Department of Health Studies , College of Arts and Sciences , the primary objective of the MS in Health Promotion Management is to provide a competency-based, multidisciplinary academic program for individuals dedicated to assuming leadership positions within the health promotion industry. The curriculum integrates managerial skills with scientific and clinical knowledge of exercise physiology, human biochemistry, behavioral psychology, and nutrition. Students also select an area of emphasis in either corporate health, exercise physiology, global health, health communication, health policy, or nutrition education.

Admission to the Program

The program is open to students with varied undergraduate backgrounds and has few science-related academic prerequisites. The academic record and experience of each applicant will be thoroughly reviewed by the program director. The minimum university requirements for admission to graduate study are a bachelor’s degree earned at an accredited college or university and a 3.00 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.00 scale) for the last 60 credit hours of undergraduate study. A satisfactory score on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required for admission. Program prerequisites include exercise physiology. However, these courses can be taken after admission to the program. International applicants who are fluent in written and spoken English are encouraged to apply.
