The Kinesiology program of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte emphasizes basic and clinical interdisciplinary education and research in areas of Kinesiology.
The Department of Kinesiology has three concentrations within the M.S. in Kinesiology program that include a clinical (non-thesis) and research (thesis) degree option.
The concentrations require 35-36 credit hours approved by the Department of Kinesiology and a minimum of 15 credit hours presented for the degree must be in the courses numbered 6000 and above. The concentrations require the same 12 hours of core courses but differ in their specific courses and the number of elective hours. Courses for which undergraduate credit has been awarded may not be repeated for graduate credit. At the time of admission, up to 6 credit hours of graduate transfer credit may be accepted if approved by the Department of Kinesiology and the Graduate School.
A range of research opportunities exist in the Department of Kinesiology for qualified students. Students are encouraged to become engaged in the research focus of the department.
