Master of Science in Kinesiology
The Master of Science in Kinesiology is a master’s program in the College of Public Health that prepares graduates to seek a doctoral degree or work in variety of settings depending on your degree concentration. The program offers concentrations in Athletic Training, Integrative Exercise Physiology, and Psychology of Human Movement.
Temple’s Department of Kinesiology aims to advance comprehensive inquiry into, and understanding of, human movement in all of its forms and implications. The program primarily trains academicians but also clinicians/practitioners in some areas. The program offers an opportunity to engage in coursework as well as research and applied work across a range of subdisciplines within the discipline of Kinesiology.
You will combine coursework and a research or applied culminating experience to gain advanced knowledge of the field. Faculty members provide mentorship and academic guidance for both in-class learning and practice-based fieldwork. Many approach the program with a strong engagement in sports, and past students have worked with patients in settings from hospitals to professional sports.
Note: The MS in Kinesiology Athletic Training program does not enable students to take the Board of Certification exam. If you are interested in becoming a certified athletic trainer, explore Temple’s Master of Science in Athletic Training program.
