Kinesiology M.S.

Total Semester Credit Hours = 36

Kinesiology is the study of movement or exercise. The Master of Science Degree Program in Kinesiology provides advanced study of kinesiology with a core focus on exercise science. The program prepares for a broad range of careers related to exercise, or provides foundation for subsequent doctoral study. This degree is also appropriate for clinicians, such as physical therapists and athletic trainers, who want to further their understanding of the science related to their areas of practice.

The curriculum leading to the M.S.-Kinesiology Degree may be completed via traditional face-to-face classes, entirely online, or via a combination of face-to-face and online classes. In addition to completing the required course work, earning the M.S.-Kinesiology Degree requires satisfactory completion of a comprehensive exam in the latter part of the student’s program of study.
