The MA in Physical & Health Education (PHE), Sport Sociology & Cultural Studies (SSCS) consists of two distinct yet overlapping research streams. The PHE research steam is primarily concerned with the study of physical and health education programming, physical education teacher experiences, curriculum studies, and teacher education. The SSCS stream is primarily concerned with the sociocultural study of sport, recreation, and leisure across a variety of contexts. Our McGill research team is particularly keen on research partnerships with Indigenous, working class, and/or marginalized sport communities and attempts to focus on how sport & physical activity can be used to foster community wellbeing. Potential research topics for the PHE stream include: Critical pedagogy; social justice in physical education teacher education; early career physical education teacher experiences; outdoor education; Indigenous ways of knowing in kinesiology and physical education. Potential research topics for the SSCS stream include: Indigenous sport and physical culture; Sport-for-development and peace; working class sport and identity; Canadian sport history.
An undergraduate degree in Physical Education, Exercise Science, Kinesiology, or its equivalent is a prerequisite. Students who seek admission to the Master's program without a degree in Physical Education, Exercise Science, or Kinesiology may be required to complete up to 30 credits of undergraduate work to qualify for admissions (to be determined by the candidate’s supervisor and/or Graduate Program Director).
