Division of Kinesiology

The Division of Kinesiology prepares students as leaders and innovators in careers in the public education forum and exercise science. We give students access and appreciation for all things kinesiology, emphasizing the biological basis to exercise and movement.

Our goal is to prepare students for the workforce while giving students an advantage over their peers if they choose to continue their studies. Students from our program have become scientists, physical therapists, dancers, doctors, coaches, athletic trainers, sports professionals, nurses and teachers. Your career path is as vast as your choices available.

We offer undergraduate degrees in applied exercise physiology, basic exercise physiology, dance science and motor behavior, among many others. Graduate degrees are offered in clinical exercise physiology, sports physiology, athletic training and sport management.

The department is an active member of the American Kinesiology Association and joins with them to promote the discipline of kinesiology as a field of study and to highlight its applications that affect all through research to enhance people's health.
