It's All Downhill After 35 and Gets Even Worse After 65

Aging makes you more fatigable, even if you are a physically active world-class master's athlete . . . research now focused on determining why and how to minimize it.

The Department of Exercise Sciences offers two BS degrees, an entry-level MAT degree (clinical, research optional), an MS degree (thesis required), and a PhD degree (dissertation required). The Department Mission and Objectives guide the program areas at each level. Each program also has a set of goals that pilot individual programs.
