Academics

Graduate Degree Program

The department offers two individual graduate degree programs: The Master of Science Degree in Education with an Emphasis in Physical Education and the Master of Science Degree in Education with an Emphasis in Athletic Administration and Coaching. The Master of Science Degree in Education with an emphasis in Physical Education provides an interestingly and a rigorously diverse, contemporary curricular offering with the intent to excite the graduates in the degree program to engage studiously in a painstaking and investigating inquisition and research endeavor of the advanced theoretical, practical, experiential, and empirical knowledge prevalent in physical education. The Master of Science Degree in Education with an emphasis in Athletic Administration and Coaching offers a curriculum requiring graduates in the degree program to engage in a profound and comprehensive exploration, examination, and study of the various administrative, scientific, injurious, and coaching models, theories, approaches, techniques, and methodologies for the effective management, administration, operation, and leadership of an athletic and/or a sport program on any athletic or non-athletic hierarchy.

Lastly, the department of HPER, as such, performs indeed the vital roles of nurturing, advising, leading, and empowering not only able-body students but also those with special needs of the diverse population of the university. In light of these roles, the department structures its overall operational processes, academic degrees, and components to have a personal, an advisory, and a professional link with these students and those with special needs.
