Additional Program Details

Movement and Cognitive Rehabilitation Science

Department of Kinesiology and Health Education

The master’s and doctoral programs in Movement and Cognitive Rehabilitation Science (MCRS) are designed to be flexible. Students have the flexibility to adjust their individual programs to line up with their future directions and career goals.

MCRS provides scientifically rigorous programs that prepare students for further education and important careers in related fields. We offer advanced multidisciplinary coursework and extensive opportunities to pursue innovative practical experiences and research.

Faculty members work closely with students to tailor an academic, practical and research program based on the interests of the students. This targeted coursework allows each student to lay a foundation for their future career’s professional, technical and practical aspects. Students can pursue a practical route (M.Ed.) focused on functional and applied coursework or a research-intensive route (M.S. or Ph.D.).

All organized graduate courses (i.e., not including Directed Research or Internship) must be taken for a letter grade. Courses taken outside of MCRS may be taken on a credit/no credit basis (with the adviser’s approval), as allowed by the Graduate School (i.e., no more than 6 credit hours, or 20% of the hours on the Program of Work). All doctoral students, except for students who are in candidacy, must enroll in KIN 197/397 MCRS Graduate Seminar every fall and spring semester.
