Pacific Lutheran University is rolling out a new Master of Science in Kinesiology program aimed at graduate students looking for curriculum blended with real-world experiences as well as working professionals already in the field.

The program is designed to provide an intimate, mentorship-driven experience that prioritizes one-on-one learning in a practitioner-focused environment. Participants can choose between two concentrations — Applied Sport Psychology and Applied Exercise Science — and each student will pair with a faculty advisor to complete an applied, evidence-based final project before graduation.

In addition to focusing on strong faculty mentorship, the program structure features opportunities for summer study, evening classes, and hybrid classes that pair one on-campus day per week with online coursework. Students can choose between 14- or 26-month completion paths, further increasing part-time or full-time flexibility.

The program opened applications on Dec. 2, with a priority deadline of Feb. 15, and the first cohort will start classes in summer 2020. For more information, visit this website.
