Offered by: Kinesiology and Physical Ed     Degree: Doctor of Philosophy

Program Requirements

The objective of the Ph.D. in Kinesiology Sciences is to provide opportunities for in-depth research experience in (an) area(s) of Departmental expertise within the breath of kinesiology research. The program will provide graduate research training in kinesiology-related areas such as exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor control, physical and health education pedagogy, and sport, exercise and health psychology provided by a rich environment in the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education. Students with a Master's degree in kinesiology or related discipline or equivalent background will qualify to apply. Students will complete 12 credits of required courses, including a capstone course intended to survey contemporary issues in kinesiology research, and two complementary courses intended to provide adequate theoretical depth to support their program of research.
