Graduate Programs

Michigan Kinesiology offers two master’s degrees and two doctoral degrees. Due to the vast resources available at the University of Michigan, Kinesiology graduate students can take advantage of opportunities for unique interdisciplinary and dual graduate degrees. Small class sizes promote faculty-student interaction and allow students to be actively engaged in the graduate learning process.

Kinesiology graduate faculty have participated in funded research and collaborative projects with the University of Michigan Medical School, College of Engineering, School of Public Health, Ross School of Business, School of Education, College of Pharmacy, and the Department of Psychology. All of these programs are ranked in the top 10 nationally by U.S. News and World Report.

All of our doctoral students receive full support at the outset - and it continues for four years based upon satisfactory performance. Research and endowed fellowships, teaching assistantships, health care benefits, Federal Work-Study, and Federal Stafford Loans are a few of the ways that master’s and doctoral students are funded. Travel funds are available to Kinesiology doctoral students to participate in professional meetings and conferences, and summer support is also available for doctoral students who are engaged in quality research.
