The Kinesiology PhD is a doctoral program in the College of Public Health. Explore the complexities of human movement and focus your research in your area of interest. You will benefit from a flexible balance between classroom investigation and applied work, and you’ll have the chance to shape your doctoral degree through independent research projects and a culminating dissertation.
Develop close relationships with faculty, who will become your professional mentors and colleagues. Work with advisors to tailor your curriculum based on your passions and research interests, such as biomechanics, orthopedics and sport psychology. You will find that the small size of the Kinesiology PhD program leads to the formation of a strong sense of collegiality among the candidates, many of whom bring real-world experience from their various professional lives to bear on the work they do in the program.
Doctoral students develop expertise in the essential teachings of kinesiology as well as applied clinical work, preparing to enter academia as well-rounded teachers and researchers.
