This program provides students with the opportunity to develop a program of advanced study focusing on the pedagogical, historical and sociological aspects of physical activity and sport. Departmental requirements provide an understanding of knowledge generation and utilization as well as ethical issues in exercise, leisure and sport pertinent to such advanced study.
A student's program of study is developed in conjunction with guidance from his/her advisor and the program plan must be formalized prior to completing 15 hours. This formalized program of study is then submitted to the Graduate Coordinator for approval. Any changes to this program of study must be done in writing and approved by the student's advisor and Graduate Coordinator.
