Dr. Pam Kocher Brown, associate professor in the Department of Kinesiology, was interviewed by The Business Journal about the new online doctoral program in kinesiogy beginning in the fall, the first of its kind in the United States.

“We’re now offering working professionals the opportunity to enroll in a highly regarded program previously available only to on-campus students,” said Kocher Brown, who has taken the lead in designing the online program. “They will have a chance to benefit from broad, interdisciplinary courses that focus on the practical application of scholarship in the workplace.”

The online program in kinesiology, which involves the study of human movement, is a doctorate of education, or Ed.D., aimed at professionals with at least three years of experience in the field. It is designed for those who want to continue working while earning their doctorate. The degree requires 48 credit hours of coursework and another 12 hours to complete a dissertation. The program is designed to be delivered entirely online except for a three-day orientation, a one-week summer on-campus session and a three-day dissertation defense.
