Why Choose a PhD?
Our PhD in kinesiology, concentrating on exercise physiology, is tailored to equip you for roles in academia or research. As a graduate with this doctoral degree, you’ll be adept at publishing your research, collaborating with fellow researchers and instructing at tertiary educational institutions.
Distinguishing it from the EdD program, our PhD offering has a pronounced emphasis on research. As part of this program, students will undertake 55 hours encompassing core courses, research studies, and independent learning, culminating in 12 hours dedicated to their doctoral dissertation.
Why Choose an EdD?
Our EdD in kinesiology, with an exercise physiology emphasis, focuses on translating research into actionable solutions for real-world challenges. As a graduate, you’ll be poised to assume leadership roles in domains like corporate wellness, higher academia, elite sports entities, and more. Besides, you’ll also be equipped to teach at tertiary educational institutions. The EdD path typically gears students towards direct interactions with clients rather than primarily collaborating with academics.
The EdD curriculum encompasses 49 credit hours of structured coursework, supplemented by 12 hours of dissertation work.
The successful completion of CSP Global’s exercise physiology PhD program can open many doors. Graduates may pursue career advancement in education, research, and health and wellness, often in leadership positions. Please note some positions may require additional education, experience, or certification.
