Kinesiology (EdD)

The EdD in Kinesiology at UNCG is an online, interdisciplinary, professional degree program specifically designed for practicing professionals who have a minimum of three years of professional experience and desire a doctorate that is focused on professional scholarship and practice (leadership, advocacy, and teaching) in Kinesiology.

The Vision of the Ed.D. Program is to prepare professionals at the highest level of excellence who are competent in the creation, synthesis, interpretation, and professional application of knowledge in leadership, advocacy, and teaching, and serve as stewards in the field of kinesiology.

The Mission of the EdD in KIN is to engage practicing KIN professionals in the scholarship of application, teaching, and engagement, and is intended to encourage students to address current issues in the field from an applied, interdisciplinary perspective and to develop action-oriented leaders in kinesiology.

Through the integration and application of interdisciplinary knowledge that links theory with practice, students will address current issues, and demonstrate competencies for professional practice in kinesiology. Through these experiences, graduates will be able to advance as scholars, leaders, advocates and teachers in kinesiology.

This mission will be accomplished over the course of four years by having students work collaboratively in learning communities sharing similar professional goals to facilitate learning, grow professional networks, and apply knowledge to professional practice.
