Graduate Admission

An individual interested in applying for admission to a master’s degree program in the Department of Health and Kinesiology should be aware of information and procedures related to graduate studies in general at UT Tyler. In addition to procedures that must be followed to meet requirements of the UT Tyler Graduate School, an applicant must complete and submit the following to the Department of Health and Kinesiology:

The department requires scores on the General Test of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), except for an applicant who has an earned graduate degree from an accredited institution. These scores should be submitted to the Office of Graduate Admissions.

For full admission to a master’s degree program in the Department of Health and Kinesiology, ordinarily an applicant must:

  • Have an earned baccalaureate degree from an accredited academic institution in a field closely related to the mission of the intended master’s degree program.
  • Have earned a grade point average of at least 3.00 on a 4-point scale for all upper-division undergraduate hours or have an earned graduate degree from an accredited academic institution.
  • Have scored at the 30th percentile or higher on each of the sections of the General Test of the Graduate Record Exam—Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing (GRE scores not required if an applicant has an earned graduate degree from an accredited academic institution).
  • Submit three strong letters of recommendation from individuals in professional positions who can validly comment on the applicant’s suitability for graduate studies in general and for studies in the intended field in particular.

The Department of Health and Kinesiology may limit the number of applicants admitted to a particular degree program for a given semester. Therefore, meeting the minimum requirements for admission does not guarantee admission.
