School of Kinesiology M.Ed. Handbook


Welcome to the School of Kinesiology at University of Minnesota! This handbook is designed to provide M.Ed. graduate students with a readily available source of information about their program, procedures, and graduate student resources.

The University offers many comprehensive and useful resources to help students navigate through the graduate education system. Students should refer to these sources for more details: 
  • The Graduate School: provides information for prospective and current students about graduate education at the U of M. This website is an essential resource for students as they progress through their degree program.
  • Information on University class schedule, registration, financial aid, tuition, etc. is available at One Stop.
The School of Kinesiology is one of seven departments in the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD). Each department is administered by a chairperson or director appointed by the Dean of the College. The director of the School of Kinesiology, Dr. Beth Lewis, oversees the instructional, research, and service activities and accomplishments of the faculty and students.

It is the intent of graduate education in the School of Kinesiology to instill in each student an understanding of and capacity for discovery, scholarship, independent judgment, academic rigor, and intellectual honesty. It is the joint responsibility of faculty and graduate students to work together to develop relationships that encourage freedom of inquiry, demonstrate personal and professional integrity, and foster mutual respect.
This handbook will serve as an important guide for graduate education in the School. Other current and key materials for School of Kinesiology graduate students are available here.

This handbook will not be able to serve all your needs. Whenever you have questions, be sure to contact your M.Ed. adviser.

Again, welcome to the School of Kinesiology. We look forward to working with you.
