What you'll learn
These are just a few options of where your degree will take you. Your journey starts here.
Once you begin, you'll work in in-depth, science-based studies of the human body, its adaptations to physical activity, and how exercise and physical activity interventions can be prescribed to decrease risk for diseases related to sedentary living.
You will explore human movement and muscular control, including how to research, analyze, and interpret data in human performance. You may choose from electives that cover cardiac assessment in exercise testing, muscle physiology, and advanced theories of high-level performance.
The MSK degree includes 18 hours of major topics in kinesiology and human performance, as well as 18 hours of interdisciplinary elective courses. You will choose from three tracks: Thesis, non-thesis, and a Master of Science in Kinesiology with a Graduate Certificate in Public Health.
