Online Masterís Degree

The UT Tyler Department of Health and Kinesiology collaborates with the University of Texas TeleCampus and five other University of Texas institutions (Arlington-UTA; El Paso-UTEP; Pan American-UTPA; Permian Basin-UTPB; and San Antonio-UTSA) to provide Internet-based courses that enable students to earn a master's degree entirely via online distance learning. This collaborative program is known as the Kinesiology Online (KINO) Master's Degree Program. An individual may earn UT Tyler's M.Ed. Degree in Health and Kinesiology entirely via online courses offered as part of this program. Application and admission to the M.Ed. Program and degree requirements are the same regardless of whether the curriculum is completed entirely online, entirely on campus, or with a combination of online and on-campus classes. The process of registration for online courses may be different from registration for other courses, and fees for online courses may be more than for on-campus courses. To earn the M.Ed. Degree in Health and Kinesiology via the Kinesiology Online Program, a student must complete at least 12 hours of courses taught by UT Tyler faculty.

Following is a list of courses that are periodically available online. Some are UT Tyler courses and some are offered by other University of Texas institutions that are part of the Kinesiology Online Master's Degree Program. These courses may be used to fulfill requirements of UT Tyler's M.Ed. Degree in Health and Kinesiology, or requirements of other degree programs with consent of the student's advisor. Descriptions of these online courses are listed under Kinesiology Online Program in the Course Description Section of this catalog.
