About

Graduate students in the program of General Kinesiology and Sport Sciences at the University of Nebraska Kearney must select either a thesis or a non-thesis option.

Overview

We offer a master degree in General Kinesiology and Sport Sciences at the University of Nebraska Kearney. In addition to academic coursework, students must complete a 6 hour thesis project under the direction of a thesis advisor. 

At the time a student elects to write a thesis, the advisor and the Chair of the KSS Graduate Program Committee shall obtain approval from the Dean of Graduate Studies on the composition of the committee by submitting a "Proposed Supervisory Committee" form. 

This committee will approve a thesis proposal and guide the student in the writing of the thesis. The committee will also examine the student in the required oral examination at the completion of the project. The time and place of the examination will be determined by the Chair of the Committee.

Programme Structure

  • In addition to their coursework, students pursuing the  MAE in Physical Education Exercise Science, General Kinesiology and Sport Sciences, or Physical Education Master Teacher Non-Thesis Option must successfully complete a comprehensive examination prior to graduation. 
  • Comprehensive examinations are to be taken on the campus of the University of Nebraska at Kearney unless an off campus site and a waiver for the on campus requirement are approved by a majority vote of the KSS graduate faculty. Comprehensive examinations will be offered the last week of March, June, and October. The comprehensive written examination will consist of at least three questions.
