Student Learning Outcomes:

Upon graduation, all students in the Undergrate Program will demonstrate measurable competencies in the following areas:

  1. Students will gain knowledge of the history and broad content within the disciplines of kinesiology and health promotion and develop skills to enable the synthesis of concepts within and across disciplines.
  2. Students will develop communication skills (oral and written), interpersonal skills, critical thinking skills, technological skills, and reflective skills necessary to enhance scholarly pursuits and become lifelong learners within the disciplines of kinesiology and health promotion.
  3. Students will perform basic motor skills and patterns and apply a variety of concepts, theories, and methods common to kinesiology and health promotion and become equipped with the skills necessary to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
  4. Students will utilize statistical and measurement concepts (qualitative and quantitative) to assess student/client performance and program effectiveness
  5. Students will demonstrate professional and ethical decision making skills and civic responsibility when applying knowledge of kinesiology and health promotion.

Graduate Program

Master’s of Science in Kinesiology:   Admission Criteria - Fall 2013

There are three tracks from which to choose:

Exercise Physiology
Curriculum & Instruction
Adapted Physical Education

Research interests of graduate faculty include: muscle damage, bone density and physical activity, cardiovascular risk factors and screening, exercise immunology, muscular performance, physical activity and aging, muscle function, biomechanics of locomotion, exercise and stress response.

 
Exercise Physiology The Exercise Physiology Option incorporates coursework that entails applied laboratory experiences, standard lecture and seminar components. The program is designed to offer students a strong foundation in exercise science that will empower them to be successful in clinical, educational and fitness fields. The program also prepares students for more-advanced education in exercise physiology. In addition to exercise science coursework, students may also incorporate courses in biochemistry, nutrition and biology in their program. All students complete a master's thesis project as a culminating experience.
