Very flexible with scheduling classes, Hands on approach with research. The only downside with the program is the funding. assistantships and fellowship stipends are considerably lower that comparable universities

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is the most rigorous and well-recognized in the state. However, it isn't perfect and could really use diversity among its students. This is likely a problem with the field as a whole, however, as it is overwhelmingly white women that dominate the field.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

There are a great more deal of good things about this program than bad things. My chief complaint is the lack of diversity in the program, but that's a function of the profession as a whole, rather than this particular program. The faculty here are wonderful and want you to succeed.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

JMU is wonderful. I came from a small school in undergraduate and JMU has been so welcoming and wonderful. I was nervous about the size, but the program is so tight and close that I don't feel uncomfortable at all. I would recommend this program to anyone looking for a Master's Degree in the Kinesiology field.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

JMU in Harrisonburg left me with a fantastic college experience. I majored in Kinesiology with a concentration in Physical Health Education Teacher Education. My classmates and I became close friends and tried to take in everything that is the JMU culture. You get a sense of pride to call yourself a graduate of JMU, and I am very fortunate enough to go back there for grad school.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

James Madison University's graduate kinesiology program is more than suitable for the future exercise science professional. With an emphasis on development through research, the kinesiology grad becomes well-equipped to perform real world reasoning and application in the exercise field. I am confident that my thesis, in which I plan to incorporate the relatively recent acceptance of the mind-body connection in Western medicine and behavior modification strategies, will benefit from the resources James Madison University can provide and, therefore, will be of benefit to others aiming to improve their health and well-being.
