  • Exercise Physiology is a science that studies the effect of physical activity on the systems of the human body, with applications in physiological assessment, cardiac rehabilitation, and exercise prescription.
  • Motor Control focuses on the development, acquisition and control of underlying processes responsible for movement. Emphasis may be placed on issues of motor behavior, development, learning and/or neuromuscular mechanisms.
  • The concentration in Sports Medicine is focused on injury mechanisms, prevention and rehabilitation strategies in athletes for accelerated return to competition as well as applications of what is learned from competitive athletes to improving the health of all physically active individuals.
Admission Policy and Procedures

University Policy on Admission

Admission to the graduate program is competitive. Those who meet stated minimum
requirements are not guaranteed admission, nor are those who fail to meet all of those
requirements necessarily precluded from admission if they offer other appropriate strengths.

University Admission Procedures

Applicants must submit all of the following items directly to the University Office of Graduate and Professional Education using the online admission process before admission can be considered:

  1. A completed application should be submitted no later than January 15 for the fall
    semester, and September 15 for the spring semester to ensure consideration.
  2. A nonrefundable application fee must be submitted with the application. Credit card
    payment is accepted with the online application. Checks must be payable to the
    University of Delaware. Applications received without the application fee will not be
    processed. International students paying by check must use a check drawn on a US
    bank or an International Postal Money Order.
  3. Applicants must submit a resume and a statement of professional goals and
    objectives.
  4. Applicants must submit at least three letters of recommendation. All letters of
    recommendation should be managed electronically through the Office of Graduate
    and Professional Education.
  5. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) admission test scores are required.
    Applicants should request Education Testing Services (ETS) to report official test
    scores directly to the University of Delaware. The University of Delaware’s
    institutional code for ETS is 5811. Applicants are encouraged to submit student
    copies of test scores in the application packets.
  6. One official transcript of all US colleges and universities attended must be sent
    directly from the institution to the Office of Graduate and Professional Education or
    be provided in a sealed envelope with the application packet. Students who have
    attended the University of Delaware need not supply a transcript from Delaware.
  7. One official transcript of all non-US based college and university records is required.
    The transcript must list all classes taken and grades earned. If the transcript does not state that the degree has been awarded, send a degree certificate that states that the degree has been awarded. If the degree has not been awarded or the degree certificate has not been issued, evidence of the awarded degree must be provided prior to the first day of classes in the term of admission. For institutions that issue documents only in English, send the English original. For institutions that issue documents both in English and a foreign language, send both the English language original and the foreign language original. For institutions that issue documents only in a foreign language, send the foreign language original and a certified translation in English. The translation must be certified by an official of the issuing institution, a state- or court-appointed translator, or the Embassy of the issuing country in the United States.

    If it is necessary to send non-original documents:
    a. The documents must be original “attested copies”, officially attested to by the
    issuing institution or the Embassy of the using country in the United States, and
    b. Certified translations must be originals, no copies will be accepted.
  8. International student applicants must demonstrate a satisfactory level of proficiency
    in the English language if English is not the first language. The Test of English as a
    Foreign Language (TOEFL) is offered by the ETS in test centers throughout the
    world. The University requires an official paper-based TOEFL score of at least 550,
    at least 213 on the computer-based TOEFL, or at least 79 on the Internet-based
    TOEFL for an applicant to be considered for admission. In addition, departments may
    elect to require that the applicant provide a score from the Test of Spoken English
    (TSE). TOEFL scores and TSE/SPEAK scores more than two years old cannot be
    validated or considered official.
  9. International students must be offered admission to the University and provide
    evidence of adequate financial resources before a student visa will be issued. The
    University has been authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien
    students. International students are required to purchase the University-sponsored
    insurance plan or its equivalent.
  10. All first-time international students are required to attend the Orientation Day for new
    international students, which takes place before classes begin.
  11. It is a Delaware State Board of Health regulation and a University of Delaware
    mandate that all graduate students with a birth date after January 1, 1957, be
    immunized for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR). Also, students may be required
    to provide evidence of PPD (Mantoux) Tuberculosis Screening Test within 6 months prior to beginning classes. Students who are admitted beginning January 2002 are required to show proof of vaccination against meningococcal disease unless granted a waiver. Students should refer to and complete the Student Health Service
    Immunization Documentation form upon admission.

Specific Requirements for Admission into the Exercise Science Graduate Program

The Exercise Science Graduate Program Committee makes admission decisions. Students will be admitted to the program based upon enrollment availability and their ability to meet the following recommended entrance requirements.

  • Baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university
  • A GRE score of 1050 on combined math and verbal sections
  • A undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Acceptance by a primary advisor

Recommended prerequisites for Biomechanics include:

  • Math through calculus
  • Anatomy
  • One year of physics
  • Computer programming experience

Recommended prerequisites for Exercise Physiology and Clinical Exercise Physiology include:

  • One year of biology
  • Two years of chemistry
  • One year of physics

Recommended prerequisites for Motor Control and Sports Medicine include:

  • Math through calculus
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • One year of biological or physical science

Admission Application Processing

The admission process is completed as follows: First, completed applications consisting of the application form, undergraduate/graduate transcripts, official GRE scores, three letters of recommendation, and the written statement of goals and objectives are reviewed by the Exercise Science Graduate Program Committee. If the student is admissible, the application is circulated to all appropriate Exercise Science faculty in an effort to match the student with a faculty advisor. Faculty members tend to advise students whose background, goals, and objectives are compatible with their own areas of research and funding. Admissible applicants are formally admitted into the program once a faculty member has agreed to accept the applicant as an advisee.

Applications are processed as they are submitted. However, students wishing to be
considered for graduate funding must complete the application process no later than January 15 of the preceding year. The Graduate Program Committee typically requires a period of one month to process completed applications.

Admission Status

Students admitted into the Exercise Science graduate program may be admitted into one of three categories.

  1. Regular. Regular status is offered to students who meet all of the established entrance requirements, who have a positive record of scholarship in their fields of specialization, and who have the ability, interest, and maturity necessary for successful study at the graduate level in a degree program.
  2. Provisional. Provisional status is offered to students who are seeking admission to the degree program but lack one or more of the specified requirements for admission. All provisional requirements must be met within the deadline given before regular status can be granted. Students admitted with provisional status are generally not eligible for assistantships or fellowships. Students who file an application during the final year of undergraduate or current graduate work and are unable to supply complete official transcripts showing the conferral of the degree will be admitted pending conferral of the degree if their records are otherwise satisfactory and complete.
  3. Visiting Student Scholars. Visiting scholar admission is offered to students who wish to transfer graduate credits to another institution. Visiting students must submit a letter from their graduate dean or registrar certifying that they are graduate students in good standing at another institution. Such letters will be accepted in lieu of the transcripts and GRE scores which are required of all other applicants. Visiting scholar status is gradually limited to a period of two years and is a non-degree status. If visiting students desire to transfer to regular status at the University of Delaware, they must meet the stated admissions standards. Admission as a visiting student implies no commitment about later admission as a regular student or about transferability of courses from the student's original institution.

Regulations Governing Theses

Students are responsible for adhering to all university policies and deadlines related to
submission of forms and final thesis documents. Deadlines and policies can be found at the website for the Office of Graduate and Professional Education.

  1. Establishment of Thesis Committee: The student and his/her advisor will create a thesis committee at the time the student begins to develop the thesis proposal. The thesis committee shall consist of at least two University faculty from within the Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology, and at least one additional faculty member from inside or outside of the Department. The definition of University faculty shall include professional staff members who hold secondary faculty appointments within the department. Faculty who have retired or resigned from the University may continue to chair committees of students whose work began under their direction prior to their retirement or departure from the University. Individuals who do not meet the above stated definition given for faculty status may co-chair the thesis committee provided that the other co-chair meets the definition for faculty status. Outside faculty shall include individuals not affiliated with the M.S. in Exercise Science program. These may be individuals from outside of the University who are nationally recognized for their expertise in the area of study specified by the thesis. The Graduate Program Committee must approve committee members from outside of the University. It is the responsibility of the thesis advisor to replace members who withdraw from the committee during the thesis process.
  2. Defense of the Thesis Proposal: The format of the thesis must adhere to the University’s Thesis and Dissertation Manual. This document is available on the University’s website at http://www.udel.edu/gradoffice/polproc/#manual. A copy of the thesis proposal must be delivered to each facility that houses Department faculty at least one week prior to the proposal defense. A copy of the thesis proposal must be delivered to the members of the thesis committee at least one week in advance of the proposal defense. Proposals that involve the use of human subjects must receive approval from the University Institutional Review Board (IRB). Details for creating consent forms and submitting studies for review by the IRB can be obtained from the UD Research Office.

    All Department faculty and students will be invited to the thesis proposal defense. The candidate will present a summary of the proposed research, and will then address
    questions from the committee, attending faculty, and invited guests. After all questions have been addressed, the thesis committee will meet privately to decide whether the proposal is accepted, rejected, or accepted with stipulations. Details of the meeting will then be presented to the student. A majority of committee votes will decide the outcome. In the event of a split vote, the decision to accept or reject the thesis proposal will rest with the thesis advisor.

    Thesis committee members should sign the final copy of the approved proposal. A
    signed copy of the approved thesis proposal should be forwarded to the Exercise Science Graduate Coordinator. Students who fail the thesis proposal defense will receive one additional opportunity to repeat the process and defend a new or modified thesis proposal.
  3. Application for Advanced Degree: The deadline for degree application is September 15 for December degree conferral, December 15 for Winter degree conferral, February 15 for May degree conferral, and May 15 for August degree conferral. Students must deliver the completed and signed degree application form to the Office of Graduate and Professional Education with payment (you may attach a personal check made payable to the University of Delaware or pay at the Cashiers Office.)
  4. Defense of the Thesis: The format of the thesis must adhere to the University’s Thesis and Dissertation Manual. This document is available on the University’s website at http://www.udel.edu/gradoffice/polproc/#manual. Thesis content and organization should be appropriate for the journal(s) in which the thesis is targeted for publication with additional literature review materials contained in an appendix. A copy of the thesis must be delivered to the members of the thesis committee at least one week in advance of the defense.
  5. All Department faculty and graduate students will be invited to the thesis defense. The candidate will present a summary of the completed research, and will then address questions from the committee, attending faculty, and invited guests. After all questions have been addressed, the thesis committee will meet privately to decide whether the thesis is accepted, rejected, or accepted pending revisions. Details of the meeting will then be presented to the student. A majority of committee votes will decide the outcome. In the event of a split vote, the decision to accept or reject the thesis will rest with the thesis advisor. Students must pass the thesis defense in no more than two attempts inorder to complete the requirements for the Master of Science degree with a major in Exercise Science.Preparing the Final Thesis Document. Acquire the signatures on the first approval page (3 originals required on 25% cotton bond paper). When you submit your first approval page to the Dean's office for signature, also submit a printed version of your thesis/dissertation/executive paper for the Dean's review. The Office of Graduate and Professional Education takes your paper to the Vice Provost for his signature. Do not contact the Vice Provost directly for his signature. Doctoral Students: Acquire the signatures of committee members on the second approval page (3 originals required on 25% cotton bond paper).

    Prepare a PDF version of your thesis/dissertation. You should inquire in your program whether or not a bound paper copy is required to be submitted to your adviser or department.

    Students must schedule an appointment at the Office of Graduate and Professional Education on or before the deadline to submit the required documents for your master's thesis. Please email marym@udel.edu to request an appointment.
    The University reserves the right to duplicate a thesis for distribution to other libraries or for the use of individual scholars. However, the University will not publish a thesis for general distribution without the written consent of the author.

General Information Relevant to Master’s Candidates

Graduate Course Numbering System

Graduate credit may be earned for courses numbered 600 to 699, 800 to 898, and 900 to 998. (Courses numbered 600 to 699 are graduate-level courses open to qualified, advanced undergraduates by permission of the instructor.)

Application for Advanced Degree

The deadline for degree application is September 15 for December degree conferral, December 15 for Winter degree conferral, February 15 for May degree conferral, and May 15 for August degree conferral. Students must deliver the completed and signed degree application form to the Office of Graduate and Professional Education with payment (you may attach a personal check made payable to the University of Delaware or pay at the Cashiers Office.)

Graduate Grade Point Average

Students must have a minimum overall cumulative grade point average of 3.0 to be eligible for the degree. In addition, the grades in courses applied toward the degree program must equal at least 3.0. All graduate-numbered courses taken with graduate student classification at the University of Delaware are applied to the cumulative index. Credit hours and courses for which the grade is below "C-" do not count toward the degree even though the grade is applied to the index. Candidates should see that their instructors have submitted all final grades. Temporary grades of "S" (Satisfactory) are assigned for 868 (Research) and 869 (Master's Thesis) until a final letter grade is submitted upon the completion of the thesis or dissertation.

Time Limits for the Completion of Degree Requirements

Time limits for the completion of degree requirements begin with the date of matriculation and are specifically expressed in the student's letter of admission. The University policy for students entering a master's degree program is ten consecutive semesters to complete the degree requirements. Students completing the requirements for the master's degree who are subsequently granted permission to continue toward the doctoral degree are given an additional ten consecutive semesters. Students who change their degree plan and have transferred from one degree program to another degree program are given ten consecutive semesters from the beginning of the first year in the latest program.

Extension of the Time Limit

An extension of time limit may be granted for circumstances beyond the student's control. Requests for time extensions must be made in writing and approved by the student's advisory committee and the Exercise Science Graduate Coordinator. The department will forward the request to the Office of Graduate Studies. The Office of Graduate and Professional Education will determine the student's eligibility for a time extension and will notify the student in writing of its decision to grant an extension of time.

Sustaining Status for Candidates Pursuing Thesis/Dissertation Degree Option

Once a graduate student has completed all required course credits needed for the degree (including six credits of Master's thesis [869]) and all other degree requirements except the submission of thesis, the student is required to maintain his/her matriculation in the degree program during the fall and spring semesters by registering for Master's Sustaining: Thesis (UNIV 899). All students, including sustaining students, are required to be registered in the semester in which the degree is officially awarded. Sustaining registration is required for summer session if the student completes the degree in summer session. (Sustaining registration is never required for winter session as graduate degrees are not awarded at the conclusion of winter session.)

Transfer of Credit Earned as a Continuing Education Student at the University of Delaware

Students who complete graduate credits with the classification of CEND (Continuing Education Non-degree) at the University of Delaware may use a maximum of 9 graduate credits earned with this classification toward their graduate degree. The CEND credits, grades, and quality points become a part of the student's academic record and grade point average. CEND credit can be transferred provided that: (a) the course was at the 600-800 level, (b) the course was taken within the time limit appropriate for the degree, (c) the course was approved by the student's adviser and the chair of the student's major department, and (d) the course was in accord with the specific degree program as specified by the unit's Graduate Program Policy Statement.

Transfer of Credit from Another Institution

Graduate credit earned at another institution will be evaluated at the written request of the student. Such a request should be directed to the student's major department using a Request for Transfer of Graduate Credit form. A maximum of 9 credits required for the degree will be accepted provided that such credits: (a) were earned with a grade of no less than B-, (b) are approved by the student's adviser and the chair of the student's major department, (c) are in accord with the specific degree program of the student as specified by the unit's Graduate Program Policy Statement, (d) are not older than five years, and (e) were completed at an accredited college or university. The credits, but not the grades or quality points, are transferable to University of Delaware graduate records. Graduate courses counted toward a degree received elsewhere may not be used. Credits earned at another institution while the student was classified as a continuing education student at that institution are not eligible to be transferred to one's graduate degree at the University of Delaware. Credits from institutions outside of the United States are generally not transferable to the University of Delaware.

Transfer of Credit from the Undergraduate Division at the University of Delaware

Students who wish to transfer credits from their undergraduate record to their graduate record may transfer a limited number by arranging with the department to have these courses approved by their instructors before the courses are taken. These courses must be at the 600- level, and the student must perform at the graduate level. They must be in excess of the total required for the baccalaureate degree, must have grades of no less than B-, and must not be older than five years. The credits, grades, and quality points will transfer.

Credit for "Special Problem" Course Taken as a Graduate Student

Some 400-level courses may be completed for graduate credit if the graduate student does additional work. Students must register for the course at the graduate level using the departmental number of 666. For example, a graduate student who attends PSYC 425 and fulfills additional graduate level requirements to earn graduate credit should register for PSYC 666, not PSYC 425. The student may process a titling form for the 666 numbered course.

Expiration of Credit

Course credits expire five years after the course has been completed.
