Advanced training is essential for professionals planning to work with athletes. A specialized advanced degree at the master's level will set practitioners apart from their peers. This program will also prepare graduates for opportunities in research and teaching. The Master of Science in Sports Science and Rehabilitation (MSR) degree is an interdisciplinary, comprehensive graduate program designed to provide a unique preparation for sports injury and performance management. Students are prepared by didactic learning opportunities to evaluate, treat and rehabilitate acute and chronic pain, as well as musculoskeletal pathology.
The recipient of the MSR degree will possess the skills essential for the assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and management of sports-related injuries. Logan offers an excellent broad opportunity to work with athletes in the St. Louis metropolitan area and surrounding region or in the student’s community. The internship capstone process provides experience in a variety of settings, blending all facets of the educational process with multi-disciplinary clinical settings. In addition, students are able to develop their own internship program within provided parameters. The program provides the academic background necessary to complete several outside certification processes. Emphasis is placed on practical knowledge and the development of an integrated approach.
This degree features an online format designed to provide flexibility for students. An in-person internship is required at the end of the program but can be completed at an approved location that is convenient to the student which allows for an experience to meet a student's area of interest.
No GRE examination is required.
