From School of Education & Kinesiology - Pacific Lutheran University

At Pacific Lutheran University, we are dedicated to equipping graduate students with the skills, tools, and knowledge needed to transform the life of others. The School of Education and Kinesiology offers two graduate degrees, Master of Arts in Education and Master of Science in Kinesiology.

The Master of Arts in Education has two paths: a one-year degree program preparing new teachers for elementary and secondary education; an alternative route to certification is for anyone with previous education experience to become certified and begin teaching, with the option to continue with their master’s in three years.

The Master of Science in Kinesiology prepares students with the skills and knowledge in exercise, sport, performance, health and fitness related careers including physical therapist, occupational therapist, recreational therapist, respiratory therapist, and more to improve health and quality of life.
