Master in Kinesiology and Human Performance

General

Program Description

Kinesiology is evolving. So can you.

The field of applied health and exercise sciences changes every day. Health organizations — from fitness centers to athletic departments to hospital wellness programs — are searching for professionals who can keep up. Do you have what it takes? We think so. And we can help you get the graduate-level credentials in exercise physiology to prove it!

A clinical focus.

If you plan to move on to a clinical career, this degree option places an emphasis on clinical experience that will prepare you for graduate work at the doctoral level.

Gain hands-on experience.

Our program infuses teaching, coaching and research-based concepts that combine experiential and theoretical learning. You’ll gain a graduate-level understanding of the bio-scientific study of human movement and its role toward improving functionality for all individuals.

Choose your path.

You decide. There are three tracks to complete our master's program — defend a graduate thesis, complete a research project, or pursue a graduate internship that fuses exercise science concepts with Briar Cliff’s mission of service and community outreach.
