Doctor of Philosophy in Kinesiology
Graduate courses in the Department of Kinesiology are designed to provide qualified individuals with the opportunity to pursue advanced study beyond the baccalaureate level.
Biomechanics, exercise physiology, biochemistry, and motor behavior/pedagogy laboratories have been dedicated specifically for teaching and research. These well equipped facilities permit research studies on persons with and without disabilities in the areas of stress testing, body composition assessment, bone density, cardiovascular respiratory analysis, blood biochemistry analysis that includes glucose, lactate, insulin, C-peptide, and a variety of other hormones and metabolites; isokinetic, isometric, and isotonic strength testing; anthropometry; telemetry; and high speed motion analysis, among others.
Total Semester Credit Hours Required
96 semester credit hours, including semester credit hours from master’s level work, and 6 semester credit hours for dissertation.
18 semester credit hours
21-36 semester credit hours, depending on area of study.
Optional, number of semester credit hours variable.
At least nine semester credit hours of course work must be taken outside the department.
The student in consultation with the advisory committee will determine 12 semester credit hours of research tools.
The exam is comprised of four written sections over selected areas of the student’s emphases and an oral section. May be repeated once.
Oral examination conducted by the Dissertation Committee over the candidate’s research after the dissertation is completed. May be repeated at the discretion of the committee.
