In integrating disciplinary contexts, the PhD program in exercise and nutritional sciences is uniquely designed to train scholars to conduct high impact, transdisciplinary health promotion research that explores issues that contribute to health through chronic disease risk reduction, quality of life promotion and enhancement of well-being.
Students are actively engaged in research at every stage of the program through participation in research practicums, translational research teams, research seminars and colloquia, and dissertation research. Students work collaboratively with an approved mentor from the beginning to the end of the doctoral program, and select to focus their research on one primary area of interest: metabolism and physiology, behavioral and population health sciences, or biomechanics and motor control.
Program graduates are prepared for research careers in research-intensive universities, governmental agencies, and health-related research positions in private industry.
The program is four years of full-time study after earning a master's degree. The program accepts part-time students.
