Program description

In 2005, the MSc (Kinesiology) programme began. Throughout its history, many master's students have gone on to doctoral programmes. During that time, graduate students wrote or co-wrote more than 200 peer-reviewed articles. The laboratories are well-equipped, including, but not limited to, 5 data acquisition systems (i.e. force, EMG, range of motion), 2 metabolic carts, hypoxic air generator, force platform, isokinetic dynamometer, 4 muscle stimulation units, transcranial magnetic stimulation units, immersion tank, accelerometers, lumbar motion monitor, and a variety of strain gauges.

Graduates have gone on to work in a wide range of fields, including university professors, physicians, lawyers, engineers, administrators, and teachers. Many graduate students have gone on to earn doctorates in a variety of intriguing subjects. Graduate programmes are provided in both full-time and part-time forms, with a variety of possibilities for students. The Institution of Human Kinetics and Recreation is a small school with professionals in the field who aim for student success and adopt techniques to ensure it.
