Kinesiology is the study of movement or exercise. The Master of Science Degree Program in Kinesiology will provide advanced research-oriented study of kinesiology. The program prepares for a broad range of careers in exercise, physical education, coaching- or sport-related settings, or provides foundation for subsequent doctoral study in exercise science, physical education and/or kinesiology. 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. Strong background in the basic sciences is excellent preparation for the M.S. Kinesiology Degree Program.
