Professional programs

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) examines human movement, physical performance, and organizational structures of sport, exercise and movement science, and sport and recreation management.

This professional studies program prepares students for advanced study or careers in coaching, health professions, or sport administration. This graduate-level, practitioner-oriented program is offered by the School of Kinesiology in the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD).

With guidance from faculty advisers, students choose at least 30 semester credits, which may include coursework, independent study, internships, workshops, and professional site-based experiences.
