SEU’s master’s program in kinesiology equips both recent college graduates and working professionals to excel as leaders in the health, fitness, wellness and education fields, whether as an athletic administrator/coach, personal trainer, sport ministry director or one of the many other career options available. The 33-credit hour program is structured in an eight-week course format, which can be taken fully online or in a hybrid format that features classroom interaction, online course work and live video instruction. You will gain a broad understanding in the areas of sport science, physical education, coaching, sport administration, sport ministry and strength-training performance. And if you have a specific area of interest, you’ll be able to tailor your learning through course projects, field experiences and research assignments.
