Master of Arts in Global Leadership/Master of Science in Kinesiology

DUAL DEGREE

Global Leadership consists of connecting with people in other cultures and societies around the globe and finding ways to exert a positive influence on their lives. Learning the intercultural skills and understanding multiethnic dynamics are crucial skills for leadership in today’s increasingly multicultural and multiethnic environments.

The purpose of the Master of Science in Kinesiology program is to equip candidates for Christian servant leadership in the multi-faceted areas of Kinesiology, equipping them with intercultural and leadership skills equal to integrating their Christian faith and witness as they make significant contributions to the human endeavor.

The dual degree will prepare students to better manage the wide variety of global ministry challenges associated with sports ministry, fitness, wellness, physical therapy, and health care providers.
