A Master of Science in Health and Kinesiology is the right fit — and there is no better place to earn your degree than the University of Texas at San Antonio.
UTSA has the only MS program in Health and Kinesiology in San Antonio. Join the forward-thinking, research-based program to prepare you for an enriching career. With three specializations to choose from, you can focus on health, exercise science, or sport pedagogy.
Along with your degree, you will gain skills employers want: critical thinking, problem solving, oral and written communication skills and a thorough understanding of research and data analysis.
Dive into a vigorous research-focused curriculum aimed at providing students the experiential education that will take them to the next level in their career journey. All students take coursework in research methodology and statistical analysis. Starting Fall ’21, there are two areas of specialization, each with a thesis (33 credit hours) and non-thesis (33 credit hour track):
Thesis Track (33 credit hours) is recommended for students who wish to pursue a doctoral degree or for those who wish to obtain research-intensive positions within city, state, and government agencies. Six hours of master’s thesis research is included in the total credit hours required for this option.
Non-Thesis Track (33 credit hours) is recommended for current and future educators who wish to gain both additional training and practical knowledge for professional development. Students who are interested in pursuing careers in community and non-profit organizations may select this option. Please note, if admitted prior to the Fall ’21 semester, the non-thesis track is a total of 36 credit hours.
