Has anyone ever attended this program? It seems pretty legit to me. Also, can anyone give me any direction as far as careers go for kinesiology v.s. exercise physiology? I did my bachelors in physiology and think what I really want to be doing is exercise physiology. I feel like kinesiology is tied in very closely to exercise science/exercise physiology that I will be fine sticking to the program I am applying to. Anyone have any insight?
A friend of mine here, currently Okinawa Japan, was in the on-line Kinesiology program through UT. She did all of her master’s on-line without having to attend any real time classes. She enjoyed the program and only had positive things to say about it.
When I asked her the same question about kinesiology vs. exercise physiology or exercise science, and in my research as well: kinesiology is more about the clinical science, trials and research of the movement of the human body. More about working in a clinical setting. Exercise physiology has more to do with the application. Working with people who are overcoming disease, have been stepped down from a rehab program, etc. She was using it as a stepping stone in her teaching career, going from elementary education to college course instruction.
Good luck! Can’t wait to hear what you think of the program.
