Health Education & Psychology of Physical Activity

Ph.D. in Health Education & Psychology of Physical Activity

The Ph.D. in Health Education & Psychology of Physical Activity* at the University of Kansas School of Education is offered through the Department of Health, Sport, & Exercise Sciences. Doctoral students need to interview with a faculty adviser in the preferred specialized area of study before applying for admission.
