Courses The University of Texas at Austin
Laboratory or workshop-type instruction dealing with selected problems in specialization areas of kinesiology. Conference course. May be repeated for credit when the topics vary. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
Topic 1: Laboratory Techniques in Exercise Physiology. The theory and practice of modern laboratory and field techniques used to evaluate human physical performance and physiological function. Prerequisite: Kinesiology 325K, or consent of instructor.Topic 4: Biomechanics Laboratory. Prerequisite: Kinesiology 395 (Topic 36: Biomechanics of Human Movement), two semesters of calculus, and one semester of college physics (mechanics) consent of instructor.Topic 6: Advanced Laboratory Techniques in Exercise Physiology. Knowledge and skills needed to assess the metabolic characteristics of the rat, to evaluate the metabolic characteristics of skeletal muscle, and to perform essential biochemical assays and procedures that are typically used in biochemical and molecular biology experiments. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor.Topic 7: Clinical Exercise Physiology: Theory and Practice. Designed for students interested in assessing physical fitness and well-being and designing exercise programs in corporate, community, clinical, occupational, and commercial settings. Students receive practical experience assessing physical fitness. Prerequisite: Kinesiology 325K or the equivalent.Topic 9: Motor Development: Assessment. Review of screening, diagnostic, or programmatic motor assessment instruments. Prerequisite: Kinesiology 321M or the equivalent, Kinesiology 395 (Topic 45: Seminar in Motor Development), or consent of instructor.Topic 10: Pedagogical Technology. Analysis and application of fundamental and advanced technologies in physical activity settings. Prerequisite: Graduate standing, or consent of instructor.
Disciplines of research methods, research design, data-producing techniques, treatment and interpretation of data, reporting on research. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. May be repeated for credit when the topics vary. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
Topic 1: Research Methods: Proposal Writing. Required of all candidates for the master degree in kinesiology with thesis or report. Additional prerequisite: Educational Psychology 371 or an equivalent introductory statistics course with a grade of at least C.Topic 2: Research Methods: Applied Research Techniques.Topic 3: Qualitative Research Methods PCSS. Introduction to the theoretical and methodological aspects of qualitative research, as well as qualitative research approaches from a variety of disciplines and philosophical traditions with an emphasis on the application of research designs, data collection, and analysis techniques for researchers of sport, physical culture, exercise, and physical activity. Recommended for students specializing in sport management or interdisciplinary sport studies. Kinesiology 386 (Topic: Qualitative Research Methods PCSS) and Kinesiology 386 (Topic 3) may not both be counted.Topic 4: Research Methods: Grant Writing.

Excellent teaching and research laboratories are available to graduate students in kinesiology. Special classrooms and computer facilities are available, as well as teaching laboratories for human anatomy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, rehabilitation and movement science, motor control and learning, physical development and aging, children movement, and athletic training. Research laboratories are available for both basic and applied research with whole-body and subcellular investigations. Also available for field research are various schools, institutions, and agencies in Austin and surrounding communities.
Students pursuing the Master of Science in Kinesiology specialize in exercise physiology, rehabilitation and movement science, or sport management. Students pursuing doctoral studies can specialize in either exercise physiology, rehabilitation and movement science, or physical culture and sports studies.
Within exercise science, master’s degree students follow a general course of study in exercise physiology or rehabilitation and movement science. Doctoral students in exercise science can focus on exercise physiology (human performance, exercise biochemistry, etc.) or rehabilitation and movement science (biomechanics, motor control and learning, developmental science, etc).
Kinesiology and Exercise Science is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than average for all occupations Median pay for Kinesiology and Exercise Science in 2018 was 47340$. The number of jobs were 6880.
