3 Department of Kinesiology– Brief History Graduate study (masters program) in physical education at the UGA began in the 1930s in the College of Agriculture. Little development occurred until the 1960s, when doctoral programs were established and research began. Specialized programs developed over the next 50 years. Graduate study (masters program) in physical education at the UGA began in the 1930s in the College of Agriculture. Little development occurred until the 1960s, when doctoral programs were established and research began. Specialized programs developed over the next 50 years. Prior to 1991, programs that currently make up the Department of Kinesiology were in the Department of Physical Education, College of Education (COE). These programs were housed in the (Womens) Physical Education Building and Stegeman Hall. Prior to 1991, programs that currently make up the Department of Kinesiology were in the Department of Physical Education, College of Education (COE). These programs were housed in the (Womens) Physical Education Building and Stegeman Hall. In 1991, the Department of Physical Education split into a Department of Exercise Science and Department of Physical Education and Sport Studies. Each Department developed distinct graduate programs (different majors). In 1991, the Department of Physical Education split into a Department of Exercise Science and Department of Physical Education and Sport Studies. Each Department developed distinct graduate programs (different majors). In 1995, both departments moved to Ramsey Center. In 1995, both departments moved to Ramsey Center. In 2005, the COE reorganized. The Department of Exercise Science merged with the Department of Physical Education and Sport Studies to form the Department of Kinesiology. In 2005, the COE reorganized. The Department of Exercise Science merged with the Department of Physical Education and Sport Studies to form the Department of Kinesiology. In 2008, the Exercise Science and PESS graduate majors merged into a single Kinesiology major. In 2008, the Exercise Science and PESS graduate majors merged into a single Kinesiology major.
