Master of Science Strength & Conditioning
We are in the process of searching for a full-time faculty member to coordinate our efforts in strength and conditioning. We want to ensure we find the right person with the right experience to take on this responsibility and provide students the best education possible. Until we have found the right person for the role, we cannot accept any students into the program. We also plan to redesign the structure of the program once the new faculty member is hired. We will post new developments on our website as they become available.
The mission of the Master of Science Strength & Conditioning program is to enhance the education of highly qualified strength & conditioning professionals through an interprofessional curriculum integrated with opportunities to excel in research, advanced professional skills, and leadership development; ultimately translating experiences into their respective professions and future employment opportunities.
The Master of Science Strength & Conditioning degree offers the opportunity for the individual seeking applied skills in strength and conditioning to develop an interprofessional approach to athlete development. Opportunities for hands-on experiences are available at many premier sites in the community. The curriculum enhances fundamental concepts through advanced strength and conditioning courses while also including complementary subjects such as sports nutrition and sports rehabilitation. Our goals are to: equip students with a diverse and advanced knowledge base in the field of strength and conditioning; instill confidence in student's practical skills; and develop professionals who can interpret and apply research in their practice.
*Students admitted prior to Fall 2018 will matriculate with the requirements and degree name of MSc Sports Medicine: Strength & Conditioning.
