Masters Program

The Dept. of HHPR currently offers Masters of Science in Exercise Physiology, Masters of Science in Sports Pedagogy and Masters in Athletic Training degrees. Students seeking admission must meet the admission requirements of the Baylor University Graduate School for full acceptance or conditional (probationary) acceptance status. In addition, applicants must meet specific HHPR program requirements within their selected areas of specialization. In the area of exercise physiology, candidates who do not meet specific HHPR program admission requirements may be required to complete undergraduate course work to meet identified deficiencies. Previously completed course work will be evaluated on an individual basis to determine if any deficiencies exist in foundational courses for the discipline. All students are required to participate in the comprehensive exam process when their entire departmental curriculum coursework has been completed or during the final semester of their curriculum course work. Dependent upon the degree option selected, students must complete the requirements for a thesis, internship, or practicum. After completing the selected requirement/option, the student performs a professional presentation of this experience to a select examination committee.
