Along with the program-specific requirements listed below, please read the General Information section of this website for requirements that apply to all major fields.
The School of Kinesiology spans a wide range of inquiry connected by the common thread of the study of human movement. Graduate programs reflect a broad study of physical activity ranging from exercise science, movement science, and human performance, to social and behavioral science and sport management. Much of the research conducted in the school is interdisciplinary in nature and involves collaborative partnerships with life science disciplines such as medicine, neuroscience, and epidemiology and fosters links with business, education, and social sciences. MS students pursue an individualized program with an emphasis in one of the following areas: behavioral aspects of physical activity; biomechanics and neuromotor control; exercise physiology; perceptual-motor control and learning; physical activity and health; sport and exercise psychology; sport sociology.
Program Delivery
