Group: Does anyone know of any possible future doctorates (Ph.D or Ed.D) in exercise science, kinesiology, human performance, sport science, biomechanics or the like that may come to fruition? As of right now all I know of that is similar is the Ed.D in sports management offered from the United States Sports Academy, but that is more business oriented. Thanks.

WE do have hundreds of online doctorates in our degree directory.
Where do you live? In the United States? If so, what state? There may be hybrid doctorates in this area that are offered mostly online with some weekends of a few days on campus.
Tell us more ...we'll see if we can find any options for you.
I live in Tennessee. Middle Tennessee State University and East Tennessee State University both offer Ph.Ds in human performance (exercise science/kinesiology) however they pratically require you to abandon your job and live there.
Thanks for replying.
This is a tough one!
Kinesiology is not popular as a phd option on campus or online so I am hitting walls in researching this major at the doctorate level.
The University of Hawaii at Manao offers some online courses toward a PhD in kinesiology SEE:https://coe.hawaii.edu/academics/kinesiology-rehabilitation-science/phd-program
Do you already have a master's in kinesiology? Do you want to teach sports or exercise science? Or are you looking at a career in rehab or applied medicine? Most distance learning in this area is focused on teaching/coaching.
For anyone who needs a master's below are some we found that would apply:
The University of Wyoming Online Master of Science in Kinesiology - The M.S. in Kinesiology and Health is also offered off-campus to distance students as a Plan B (non-thesis) option. The area of emphasis for the distance program is physical education teacher education.
Georgia Southern University - College of Health and Human Sciences, Kinesiology - Master of Science in Kinesiology - Coaching Major Only
University of Central Missouri College of Health and Human Services, Physical Education Exercise and Sport Science - MS Physical Education Exercise and Sports
I will keep looking for you ...
I have a BS in exercise science and a M.Ed, but would like to pursure a doctorate in the sports/exercise science domains. End goal would be to possibly teach academically and/or conduct research (coaching isn't an interest).
Thanks for the timely response.
I have put put out feelings to several online universities to see if anyone can help you. In terms of demand, the market is mostly for master's who need teacher certification or coaching certification. So that's what is out there.
I will post if anyone responds back to me with leads on an online or hybrid phd close to you.
Please post back if you find a possibility on your own as it would help others searching for rare online learning opps in this area.
