Exercise Science (MS)

Take the next step towards a career in rehabilitation, sports medicine, or fitness.

While a bachelor's degree in exercise science is sufficient to get an entry-level position, continuing education in exercise science is a must to advance in the field. At Loyola, you can earn a master's degree in exercise science and move to a career in rehabilitation, sports medicine, athletic performance, or fitness.

Picture yourself helping people making positive lifestyle choices for their health, whether it's in hospitals, acute and chronic care health centers, sports medicine, cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation, community health centers, sports performance, or fitness facilities. This degree is a great first step toward a doctorate in physical therapy or PhD in exercise science.
