Kinesiology and Physical Education

The graduate programs in kinesiology and physical education (MS and MEd) offer a general, science-based curriculum that provides the foundation for a career in exercise science or physical education. Students work closely with faculty specialists employing the latest technology to measure and analyze physical response, development, and deviation to provide understanding and application of the theory and techniques of kinesiology, health, and fitness. Classroom and laboratory experiences are designed to provide the student with an applied understanding of the scientific basis of exercise training in different populations. As Maine’s only NCAA Division I school, UMaine offers a wealth of hands-on and real-world experiences right at student’s fingertips.
