Perspectives and Plans for Graduate Studies. 10. Physical Education, Kinesiology, and Related Areas 1974.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.; Ontario Council on Graduate Studies, Toronto. Advisory Committee on Academic Planning.
This report is one of a series of disciplinary planning assessments for graduate studies in Ontario, Canada, concerning physical education, kinesiology, and related areas. Recommendations suggest: (1) There should be a limited number of discipline oriented Ph.D. programs focused on the generation of knowledge appropriate to sociology of sport, exercise physiology, and psychomotor behavior. (2) There should be a limited number of discipline-oriented master's programs. (3) The number of professionally oriented master's programs should be increased. (4) The universities should give serious consideration to the consultants' recommendations that not all titles of graduate degrees in this area include the phrase "physical education" but that the title reflect the character of the program. (5) While recognizing the general importance of part-time study for master's degrees, there be no programs specifically designed for part-time study for specialized professional master's degrees or doctoral degrees. (6) A specialized masters program in the theory of coaching should be planned for future implementation. (7) Planning for the future at the doctoral level could include an additional program in exercise physiology and one in social science of sport. (8) The universities offering graduate programs maintain close contacts with a veiw to sharing limited resources. Additional recommendations concerning various universities are included. (MJM)
