The School of Applied Physiology offers a multidisciplinary Certificate in Applied Physiology. It is designed for students – particularly those majoring in the sciences or engineering – who wish to broaden or supplement their educational experiences and career opportunities in areas related to human biology, medicine and health. The certificate program is based on courses in human anatomy & physiology and human movement sciences.
The School of Applied Physiology offers undergraduate research credits for students who regularly participate in research activity at one of the research labs. Research experience in a lab would help understand the nature of research in the graduate program and also improve the career opportunities.
The professional Master of Science in Prosthetics and Orthotics(P&O) program prepares students for clinical certification in both prosthetics, the use of artificial limbs, and orthotics, the design and fabrication of external braces. The program offers an innovative and research driven curriculum to prepare students for careers in clinical practice or research.
The Ph.D. program in Applied Physiology is designed to prepare students for research careers as scientists and educators. Physiology refers to the study of normal and abnormal regulation and integration of mechanisms across all levels of biological organization from molecules to organism to populations. The multidisciplinary Ph.D. program focuses on the study of movement and mobility using both human and animal models.
