SHRS Offering One-Year Sports Science Master’s Program

Pitt’s School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences will be offering a one-year master's degree in sports science starting in the fall 2019 semester.

Throughout the program, students will experience education and training in sports science, nutrition, sports medicine and research, including a year-long immersive internship with athletes on a designated sports team or organization. Students will also have access to the Department of Sports Medicine and Nutrition’s research facilities and faculty.

Sports science students will also have the opportunity to do research in the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory, where researchers work to find deficiencies in body mechanics and muscle function to develop programs not only to improve performance, but also minimize potential for injury among active populations such as athletes.

The sports science program’s curriculum includes evidence-based instruction and practical experiences and incorporates the use of cutting-edge sports science and wearable technologies.

Applications are now being accepted for fall 2019 program start.
