MS in Kinesiology
Training master practitioners in human movement
UIC’s Master of Science in kinesiology focuses on the relationship between a fit, strong body and quality of life, in everyone from high-performance athletes to people living with disabilities or disease.
We produce experts that examine human movement through the lenses of biomechanics, physiology, and psychology. Our students learn from award-winning faculty that are leading the way in groundbreaking studies in exercise physiology, gait, biomechanics, and the psychology of exercise.
Choose your path
With three research-focused concentrations and one practice-focused concentration, you can focus your studies to meet your interests and prepare you to be a leader in the field you choose. The research concentrations (Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, and Psychology of Exercise) are designed to give students a solid background to pursue doctoral studies in each respective field whereas the practice concentration (Performance, Sports and Exercise Psychology) is designed to fulfill the requirements for the CMPC certification.
If you’re interested in research or doctoral studies, our concentration in biomechanics is a perfect springboard.
Planning to pursue doctoral studies or a career in exercise science research? Our exercise physiology concentration will give you experience with a variety of testing, measurement and prescription techniques.
Psychology of Exercise
In the third research-based concentration, the psychology of exercise concentration, you’ll investigate interventions in exercise and health promotion, learn how to conduct research, and get exposed to behavior change strategies.
Performance, Sports and Exercise Psychology
The performance, sports, exercise psychology concentration is practice-focused and prepares you to become an accredited Certified Mental Performance Consultant through the Association of Applied Sports Psychology.
