Physician Assistant Studies at King’s College

The Physician Assistant program at King’s College is accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The five-year Physician Assistant program is composed of a three-year pre-professional phase and a two-year professional phase. Upon successful completion of the first four years of the program, students receive a Bachelor of Science in Medical Studies and a minor in Biology. Once students complete the two-year professional phase, they receive a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies (MSPAS).

Exercise Science major
The Exercise Science major provides students with an understanding of the physiological, biomechanical, and psychological effects of exercise on the human body. This unique and challenging program is designed to prepare students for a wide range of careers in the fast-growing fields of health, wellness, and fitness. Students will graduate from King’s College with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science.

King’s College offers four tracks within the Exercise Science major:
• Applied Exercise Science
• Exercise Physiology
• Exercise Science & Chiropractic (3+4)
• Pre-athletic Training (3+2 Master of Science in Athletic Training)

Both the Applied Exercise Science and Exercise Physiology tracks prepare students to enter the field of Exercise Science directly. However, these two tracks differ in terms of their preparation of students for varying postgraduate degree programs.

The Pre-athletic Training track is for students who wish to pursue the 3+2 Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program—an exciting, innovative, accelerated program that allows students to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and a Master of Science in Athletic Training in five years.

The Exercise Science & Chiropractic track allows students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science at King’s College as well a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College. This unique track allows qualified students to complete both degrees in just seven years (3+4) instead of eight (4+4).
