The graduate program in physical education, requiring 33 credits, is designed for post-baccalaureate and in-service physical educators. Training received in this program comes from two (2) areas: the foundations (6 cr.) and the program studies area of physical education (25 cr.). The emphasis in this curriculum is to provide answers to the questions “what I can learn about teaching and what decisions do I face as a professional educator?” Students will be assigned an advisor with whom they should consult on a regular basis. In fact, advisor approval is required on certain course work.
Applications to the master's degree program in Physical Education are accepted on a rolling basis.
NOTE: THE DEPARTMENT OF SPORT SCIENCE AND WELLNESS EDUCATION HAS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED ADMISSIONS TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAM IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION.
All assistantships (and any fellowships) are awarded through the academic department. Students interested in obtaining an assistantship must apply. New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements. Only those students fully admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree-seeking program are eligible for a graduate assistantship. Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.
Paying for college is a vital part of the education process. It is important to be informed of the many sources of aid available. Student loans are available to degree-seeking graduate students. Information on student loans can be found through the Office of Student Financial Aid. The Office of Student Financial Aid is located in Simmons Hall.
Current tuition and fees schedules can be found through the Office of Student Accounts.
