The Department of Kinesiology, Health Promotion and Recreation offers coursework leading
to a Master of Science degree in kinesiology with concentrations in exercise physiology,
sport pedagogy, or sport and exercise psychology. We also participate in three collaborative
doctoral degree programs.
Research is a fundamental component of our kinesiology master’s program, and you will
have numerous opportunities to participate in groundbreaking research on campus. Some
of our current research areas include motor behavior, exercise physiology, nutrition,
immunology, sport sociology, stress reactivity, cerebral blood flow regulation, exercise
interventions and health disparities.
Our faculty members are outstanding teachers, recognized scholars and active researchers.
They’ve earned honors from the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Strength
and Conditioning Association, the Association for Applied Sport Psychology, and the
Society of Health and Physical Educators.
