Master of Exercise Science

Colby-Sawyer's Master of Exercise Science (MSES) program prepares students for careers in healthcare, clinics, colleges/universities, professional sports or private settings where they work in areas like strength and conditioning, exercise physiology, cardiac rehabilitation and health and wellness.

Colby-Sawyer’s program is designed for new graduates, those already working in the exercise science field and those seeking a career change. It is also offered as a 4+1 program option for Colby-Sawyer undergraduates. Applicants with a bachelor degree in any field are eligible for admission.

This graduate program is offered entirely online, with no scheduled meeting times, and courses are offered in an asynchronous manner, allowing students to customize their studies to fit their individual needs. Choose from two tracks, strength and conditioning or applied exercise science, and complete your degree in just nine months of study as a full-time student—or, choose the part-time option. You can also enhance your learning and choose to complete an optional fellowship at one of our partner sites in strength and conditioning or applied exercise science
