M.S. in Exercise & Sport Science: High Altitude Exercise Physiology (HAEP) 3+2

How It Works – HAEP 3+2

How It Works – HAEP 3+2

Students apply to Western as traditional undergraduate students and choose an Exercise & Sport Science major with a Clinical Exercise Physiology emphasis or a Biology major with a Health Sciences emphasis. For the first three years, students take courses to fulfill their bachelor’s degree while completing the requirements to become provisionally admitted to the HAEP program.

During their fourth year, students take a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses. At the end of that year, they earn their B.S. and are considered fully admitted to the HAEP master’s program.

During their fifth year, students complete their graduate-level coursework and a thesis project. The thesis consists of an original research project—designed, implemented and presented by the student and their thesis advisors.
