About This Program

Graduate students who specialize within our exercise physiology graduate program can expect to “learn-by-doing”.  Whether this takes place in the laboratory working with in one of our basic and applied human science groups or in the field as part of an internship, our goal is to prepare students for their next step.  Students completing a masters in exercise physiology from the University of Wyoming regularly move on to doctoral degree at some of the most prestigious programs in the country.  Students also frequently move on to other professional programs (e.g., medical school, physical therapy, physician’s assistant) or onto positions in industry.

Currently, the exercise physiology graduate program has experts working in the areas of high intensity exercise, exercise and aging, renal health, hydration, circadian rhythms, toxicology, molecular biology, and cardiovascular physiology.  Students are encouraged to choose a major advisor whose research coincides with their own interests.  However, there are many times when collaborations between multiple faculty occur when overlapping interests make it reasonable.

Why Exercise Physiology?

After enrollment the student/faculty team work together to determine the best course of action for a capstone project (e.g., Thesis, comprehensive paper, experiential learning).  Faculty and students within this concentration regularly attend and present research at conferences regionally (Rocky Mountain Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine), Nationally (American College of Sports Medicine, Experimental Biology), and Internationally (Hydration 4 Health).
