UMass Boston

Exercise & Health Sciences

We offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Exercise and Health Sciences (EHS).

Upon graduating, students may choose to continue their education in:

  • Graduate-level allied health programs: physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician assistant, direct-entry nursing and medicine.
  • Exercise-related professions: exercise physiology, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness center management.
  • Health promotion professions: wellness directors, worksite health directors, community health workers, and wellness coaches.

Graduate students will gain advanced knowledge in their exercise and health promotion careers, allowing them to be promoted, take on leadership roles, practice in exercise physiology or health promotion, or go on to obtain their doctorate degrees.
