Exercise Physiology - Master of Science

The Master of Science in Exercise Physiology (MSEP) Accelerated Plan allows qualified students to start taking courses in the approved master’s degree while finishing their bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Science. Graduate course sequencing allows undergraduate students to complete their fourth year of the Rehabilitation Science major while completing the first-year coursework in the MSEP. This pathway for the Master of Science degree in Exercise Physiology is a total of five years upon matriculation to UW-Eau Claire. 

A student interested in the MSEP Accelerated plan should consult with academic advisors and the Program Director of MSEP and declare “pre-Exercise Physiology” as their course sequencing. A student will major in Rehabilitation Science in the Department of Kinesiology and earn credits toward their Bachelor of Science degree. Upon successful completion of the fifth year in the MSEP program, a student would graduate with a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology degree.

Admission Requirements (4+1 Accelerated Plan): 

 At the time of admission to the Master of Science in exercise physiology program accelerated plan, a student must have: 

  • Earned a minimum of 95 credits at the end of the 3rd year in their undergraduate Rehabilitation Science program (or obtained a consent of the Program Director). 
  • A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 after the 3rd year in their Rehabilitation Science program. 
  • Successful completion of prerequisite courses for MSEP (see Overview).
