Research Tools

Doctoral students in this degree must demonstrate competency in two research tools. Five possibilities are listed below:

  1. Research Design. Applied Statistics/Quantitative Methods. Complete 9-12 hours (excluding SRM 600 and SRM 700).
  2. Research Design. Applied Statistics/Qualitative Methods. Complete 9-12 hours (excluding SRM 600 and SRM 700).
  3. Discipline-Specific Laboratory Techniques. Exhibit competency in laboratory-based research work, which is specific to a student’s concentration area. Coursework supporting this requirement is acceptable, but not required.
  4. Computer Applications. Complete a minimum of 9 hours in graduate courses related to computer use with grades of “B” or better OR students can develop and demonstrate computer proficiency to satisfy a specific need in sport and exercise science. The students’ doctoral committee judges this program or proficiency acceptable or unacceptable.
  5. A collateral field of study may be used as a substitute for a research tool. See Graduate School policies for details.

NOTE: In order to advance to candidacy, students must demonstrate proficiency in theoretical and research foundations, teaching and communication, scholarship and professional service. Criteria for proficiency are identified in the School of Sport and Exercise Science Doctoral Evaluation Matrix.
