The student must complete an officially approved course of study of not less than 48 units as outlined below:
- ENS 601 Experimental Methods in Exercise and Nutritional Sciences (3)
- ENS 602 Research Evaluation in Exercise and Nutritional Sciences (3)
- ENS 659 Exercise Cardiology and Pathology (3)
- ENS 661 Seminar in Advanced Physiology of Exercise (3)
- ENS 662 Advanced Exercise Physiology Laboratory (3)
- ENS 668 Adult Fitness: Exercise Leadership and Administration (3)
- ENS 796 Exercise Specialist Internship (3) Cr/NC
- ENS 798 Special Study (2) Cr/NC/RP
- DPT 730 Cardiopulmonary Therapeutics (4)
- DPT 750 Pathophysiology of Physical Therapy Practice (3)
- NUTR 600 Seminar: Foods and Nutrition (3)
- NUTR 607 Child Nutrition (3)
- NUTR 608 Geriatric Nutrition (3)
- NUTR 610 Nutrition and Energy (3)
- NUTR 700 Seminar in Nutrition (3)
- NUTR 798 Special Study (1) Cr/NC/RP
- NUTR or ENS 799A Thesis or Project (3) Cr/NC/RP OR ENS (Plan A) OR
- ENS 790 Seminar in Directed Readings (3) Cr/NC (Plan B)
If a student, after entering the concurrent program leading to a Master of Science degree in nutritional science and a Master of Science degree in exercise physiology returns to a single degree program, all the requirements for the single degree program must then be met.
Thesis or Directed Readings
Students complete their degree by choosing either Plan A or Plan B. In Plan A, all students will include Nutrition 799A (thesis) or Exercise and Nutritional Sciences 799A (thesis) for completion of their degree, accompanied by a final oral examination on the field of the thesis and on the implications of the thesis research for the broader field of exercise and nutritional sciences. If students select Plan B, Exercise and Nutritional Sciences 790 (Directed Readings) is required for completion of the degree.
The school expects a student to complete the degree within seven years. Failure to complete the degree requirements within seven years will result in dismissal from the program.
