Rehabilitation Counselor Education
The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s (UHM) Rehabilitation Counselor Education Program (RCEP) provides graduate-level training designed to prepare students for a fulfilling career in Rehabilitation Counseling. RCEP is a three-year academic program leading to a Master’s of Science (MS) in Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science with a concentration in Rehabilitation Counseling.
The RCEP is conducted entirely online in both synchronous (meeting 1x/week) and asynchronous formats. Synchronous classes usually begin at 4:30 p.m. (HST) to accommodate working students. In addition, students participate in three semesters of field experiences in their own communities. This program delivers a high-quality learning experience that allows busy working professionals to earn their masterʻs degree and grow their career.
Physical Activity & Adapted Physical Activity
Students interested in Physical Activity (PA) or Adapted Physical Activity (APA) must meet the admission requirements of Graduate Division and KRS. Both areas assist in the development of the knowledge and skills that may relate to achievement of outcomes leading to national certification (i.e., national board certification in teaching or nationally certified adapted physical educator) as well as becoming familiar with the literature and models for promoting, measuring, teaching, and conducting physical activity research across the lifespan.
Health & Exercise Science (HES)

The Professional Athletic Training (AT) program’s mission is to prepare graduate students to become BOC certified athletic trainers and scholarly practitioners in the athletic training profession. Upon completion of the program, the student will fulfill all of the requirements for BOC certification. Accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
Health & PE Teacher Education (HPETE)
Those who would like to become physical education and/or health teachers or coaches in the K-12 are the best fit for this program. If completed, this program will lead to K-12,K-6, or 6-12 licensure in physical education. Those individuals who love sport and fitness and like to work with children or young adults would also benefit from this program as this degree could lead to positions in many realms of youth sport and fitness.
