Benedictine University's Master of Science in Clinical Exercise Physiology (M.S.C.E.P.) program is being revised with a goal of degree completion in 15 months on a full-time basis. The program is designed in accordance with the American College of Sports Medicine for certification as a Certified Clinical Exercise Physiologist (ACSM-CEP). Students develop the skills and qualifications to work in the prevention of cardiovascular, pulmonary and other lifestyle diseases such as obesity and diabetes. Students also receive extensive hands-on training in the rehabilitation of individuals who have experienced problems related to these diseases. The program is academically demanding and requires considerable commitment on the part of the student. If you are a highly motivated person who takes pride in building a sound scientific knowledge base about exercise physiology, we encourage you to contact us to arrange an appointment and tour our facilities.
