M.S. in Kinesiology

For more information about the M.S. in Kinesiology, schedule an appointment with Dr. Zach Riley.

What you'll learn

The Master of Science degree includes 18 hours of major topics in kinesiology and human performance, as well as 18 hours of elective courses, 9 of which must be completed within the School of Physical Education and Tourism Management. Each graduate student is assigned an advisor who helps plan their course of study based on goals and experience.

Clinical Exercise Science Track

You'll explore human movement and neuromuscular control, including how to research, analyze, and interpret data in human performance. You may also choose from a list of electives that cover nutrition, sport psychology, corporate fitness, and childhood motor development.
