Kinesiology Masters of Science Program Receives Recognition for Strength and Conditioning

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s Masters of Science program in Kinesiology has again been identified as exemplary by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Educational Recognition Program.

The NSCA is the leading organization in the world as it relates to Strength and Conditioning and consists of thousands of elite coaches, athletic trainers, personal trainers, researchers and educators. The National Strength and Conditioning Association recognizes regionally-accredited academic institutions that have met, continue to meet and, as is the case with the kinesiology program at A&M-Corpus Christi, exceed the educational guidelines recommended by the organization. Criteria include requiring course work beyond the standard expectations of strength and conditioning programs and having faculty members who are active within the NSCA and accomplished in their fields.

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Exercise Science Program is recognized by the NSCA at both the undergraduate and graduate level. A&M-Corpus Christi is one of only seven institutions to have both educational levels recognized by the NSCA.

The NSCA recognition is awarded for a three-year period.
