The master of science degree in kinesiology prepares students for careers or advanced academic training in the broad realm of kinesiology. The program offers seven areas of concentration - adapted physical education, biomechanics, exercise physiology, physical activity promotion, physical education pedagogy, sport and exercise psychology, and sport management.  Students may choose from two options: thesis and nonthesis.

Students whose undergraduate preparation lacks essential prerequisite course work or whose baccalaureate degree is in a nonrelated field may have additional requirements. All degree candidates must pass the kinesiology comprehensive examination.

The basic curriculum plan for each option within the master of science in kinesiology program requires a minimum of 36 s.h. as follows:
