Strength and Conditioning
The strength and conditioning graduate program prepares students to work with athletes as strength and conditioning coaches in secondary school, collegiate, professional, and private settings. Students will develop the skills and knowledge needed to design physiologically sound programs that enhance athletic performance, as well as the coaching skills needed to implement the programs. Coursework is both practical and research based and all students will complete multiple fieldwork experiences.
