Physical Activity Promotion

Physical Activity Promotion students will acquire an understanding of the measurement, determinants, and outcomes of physical activity. The major focus of the program is on promotion of lifestyle physical activity in children, adults, and older adults in a variety of settings. Graduates of the program will be well-prepared to continue graduate study in epidemiology or measurement of physical activity and to work in settings where they develop and deliver policy regarding physical activity, manage physical activity facilities, or promote physically active lifestyles with non-clinical populations.

To ensure full consideration for admission in the concentration and assistantships within the Activity Promotion Laboratory, potential students are encouraged to have their application completed by March 1st of the anticipated year of program entry. Applications are accepted only for Fall entry.
