M.S. Integrative Human Physiology

Course Description

The master of science degree in Integrative Human Physiology integrates knowledge from multiple sciences including anatomy, physiology, physics-mechanics, biochemistry-metabolism, exercise physiology, nutrition, and statistics to advance understanding of human function under a variety of stimuli. Stimuli include human movement, disease, aging, environmental stressors, physical injuries, and ergogenic aids. The program prepares students for further study at the doctoral or professional level, careers in higher education, clinical settings, corporate and community fitness/wellness centers and athletic development programs. Prospective candidates holding a degree in a relevant major, including physiology, exercise physiology, biology, exercise science, biomechanics, chemistry, nutrition, or health sciences, are encouraged to apply. Courses encompassing anatomy, physiology, physics, biomechanics, exercise physiology, kinesiology, biology, chemistry, statistics, and nutrition are strongly recommended at the undergraduate level. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and a scientific writing example, per department requirements, are required.

Admission Requirements:

Baccalaureate degree in a science-based discipline, such as Physiology, Physiology of Exercise, Exercise Science, Biology, Kinesiology, Health Sciences, Human Physiology, Chemistry, Nutrition.
Minimum 3.0 undergraduate GPA (last 90 credits)
Three letters of recommendation with at least two letters from professors in science based classes
A written statement of purpose (a clear, informative letter about your interest in graduate study, research interests, pertinent work experience, and career goals)
GRE scores
Scientific writing example. Prepare a brief appropriately referenced (maximum of 5 references) review paper (two page maximum, single spaced, 1” margins, 12 pt Times font), on the following topic:
Describe the impact of biological aging (focus on ~ 25 years and older) on aerobic capacity and strength in apparently healthy, physically active individuals. Highlight the significance of these changes for exercise performance or one’s ability to perform everyday tasks of daily living

Academic Preparation:

Students are expected to have satisfactorily completed (B or better) an undergraduate course of study that encompasses most if not all the following: human anatomy, human physiology, physiology of exercise, physics, kinesiology, biomechanics, sport nutrition, biochemistry and statistics.

4562.jpg “CWU is located in an ideal location, its right in the middle of WA and within driving distance of any city in WA which makes it easier to take vacations. CWU has small classes with less than 30 students in each class, this encourages a close student-instructor relationship which has been very helpful to me especially during my freshman year when I was trying to get used to the way of life here. CWU offers amazing tuition prices and waivers for international students to enable them to concentrate on school and not have to worry about their financials all the time. The international community here at CWU is very supportive of international students and the advisors are always looking out for the students by exploring new ways to improve the services they already offer.”
