Program Description:

Memorial conferred its first degree in Master of Physical Education (M.P.E.) in 1975, and in the spring of 2005 we saw our first graduates with a Master of Science in Kinesiology (M.Sc). Our graduates have moved on to a variety of professions and include university professors, lawyers, engineers, administrators, and teachers. Many of our graduate students have also gone on to pursue doctoral studies in a number of exciting fields. We offer our graduate programs in both full-time and part-time formats, with a number of different options available to students. Students completing their M.P.E. can focus on administration, curriculum, or supervision, while those completing their M.Sc. can focus on exercise physiology, ergonomics / biomechanics, or sport psychology. The School of Human Kinetics and Recreation has approximately 40 students registered for graduate studies in 2006, and we look forward to opening our doors to even more students in the future.
