Exercise Physiology

Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology at KU

The Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology* at the University of Kansas is offered by the Department of Health, Sport, and Exercise Sciences. Doctoral students need to interview with a faculty adviser in the preferred specialized area of study before applying for admission. Advisers may require specific supporting materials and/or competencies before the interview. After completion of one semester of coursework at the University of Kansas, but before completing the first 12 hours of aspirancy, the student works jointly with an adviser and a committee to develop a course of study that meets his or her particular needs.
