The Kinesiology master’s program allows students to choose from several areas of focus, including cognitive motor neuroscience, exercise physiology or physical culture studies. Students with backgrounds ranging from physiology to communications to engineering come together to work on complex problems related to physical activity and its role in human health. Students gain valuable experience through involvement in the department’s groundbreaking research studies and outreach work.
The goal of the Master of Arts degree program at the University of Maryland is to prepare students in the core specializations within the field of Kinesiology. Students meet this goal not only through formal coursework, but also through active engagement in research, departmental activities, current research seminars, and through attendance at professional meetings at the state, regional, national, and international levels. Students may select the thesis (T) or non- thesis (NT) option within
