Master of Science in Kinesiology

What you'll learn

The M.S. in Kinesiology degree includes 18 hours of major topics in kinesiology and human performance, as well as 18 hours of interdisciplinary elective courses. 

We offer three tracks:  a thesis track, anon-thesis track, and a Master of Science in Kinesiology with a Graduate Certificate in Public Health.

All tracks are designed to provide students with an in-depth, science-based understanding of the human body, its adaptations to physical activity, and how exercise/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.
