Core Courses

The program has two core courses that are of general interest to all potential students, disregarding their chosen track. CPMS 5101 Introduction to Clinical Physiology and Movement Science provides a set of core skills necessary to evaluate and to conduct research in clinical physiology or movement science. This course will serve as an "anchor" course for the program and will be required for all students seeking a minor or certificate.


CPMS 5101–Introduction to Clinical Physiology and Movement Science (3 cr)

One of the following:

  • KIN 5987–Professional Skills and Grant Writing for Health Sciences or equivalent (1-2 cr)
  • [1] PUBH 6348–Writing Research Grants (2 cr)
  • PUBH 6673–Grant Writing for Public Health (1 cr)
  • NURS 5925–Grant Writing and Critique, online course (1 cr)

Elective Courses

The following courses are currently offered by a number of graduate programs and will serve as course electives for the graduate minor and certificate program. They are being taught by faculty who will participate in the proposed program as part of their on-going University teaching responsibilities. Any course listed below that is taken as part of a specific graduate degree program cannot count as a course elective for the graduate minor or the certificate program.
