The Program in Exercise Science, which is located in the Department of Physical Therapy, offers undergraduate majors in athletic training (ATTR) and exercise physiology (EXPH).

Direct Admit Physical Therapy

For incoming freshmen admitted to the Direct Admission Physical Therapy program, the ATTR/DPT and EXPH/DPT allow students to begin the three-year DPT program in the senior year of undergraduate studies for a total of six years of study, instead of the usual seven years.

CTRH Accelerated Degree Program (ADP)

The Program in Exercise Science offers early admission into its M.S. Program in Clinical and Translational Rehabilitation Health Science (CTRH). Marquette undergraduate students majoring in Athletic Training or Exercise Physiology can apply for admission to this program in the second semester of their junior year. Students accepted into this program are eligible to enroll in up to 17 credits of Clinical and Translational Rehabilitation Health Sciences course work that carry graduate credit during their senior year. Credits obtained for these courses can be used to fulfill both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. Once students inform the Graduate School of their completion of undergraduate degree requirements, their admission as a regular degree status (RDS) student in the graduate program is activated.

MBA Accelerated Degree Program (ADP)

Marquette undergraduate students majoring in Athletic Training or Exercise Physiology can apply for admission to the Master of Business Administration program in the second semester of their junior year. Students accepted into this program are eligible to enroll in up to 12 credits of MBA course work that carry graduate credit during their senior year. Credits obtained for these courses can be used to fulfill both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. Due to the number of prerequisite courses required for admission to the MBA program, the MBA accelerated degree option requires careful planning as early as sophomore year. Interested students should contact their advisor early in their undergradute career.  Once students inform the Graduate School of their completion of undergraduate degree requirements, their admission as a regular degree status (RDS) student in the Graduate School of Management is activated.
