Accelerated Masters Program Informational Sessions

A message from Dr. Elmer, Interim Department Chair:

KIP Undergraduate Students,

Are you an extremely motivated student? Take a big leap forward with the Kinesiology Accelerated Master’s (BS-MS) program!

The Department of Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology will hold a brief informational session this week on our Kinesiology Accelerated Master’s (BS-MS) program. This new accelerated degree plan allows you to combine a bachelor’s degree from Michigan Tech in exercise science or sports and fitness management with a coursework-based master’s degree in kinesiology (4 + 1 = 5 years total). Together, the two degrees help students strengthen their admission applications to professional graduate programs (e.g., medical school, physical therapy school) and gain a competitive edge for a careers in industry (e.g., cardiac rehabilitation, strength and conditioning).

Current undergraduate students (2nd, 3rd, and especially 4th year) who are interested are strongly encouraged to attend one of the informational sessions next week (see below). After a brief overview of the program students will have time to meet with current graduate students in the program, see a hands-on demonstration of new department equipment used in research and teaching (ultrasound machine), and network with other graduate students pursuing careers in academics and physical therapy.
