The MS degree in Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science at University of Hawaii at Manoa provides opportunities for students who wish to pursue advanced knowledge and research in one of the following areas of specialization: Physical Activity, Adapted Physical Activity, or Rehabilitation Counselor Education.


In addition to the requirements of Graduate Education, applicants for the MS degrees will be further evaluated on their disciplinary degree (Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science  or AT) and in their area of specialization. The Department of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science (KRS) also requires submission of Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores.

Each applicant admitted will be classified in one of two categories: (1) Regular status–student who has a baccalaureate degree in the area which he or she will pursue and a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 during the final two years of undergraduate work, or (2) Conditional status–student of promise who may have a deficiency in grade point average and/or subject matter preparation.

Applicants of either program must also submit proof of: TB clearance, Hepatitis B vaccine or waiver and professional liability insurance prior to program entrance. Admission to the program will depend on the availability of faculty in the particular area of scholarship.
