Bachelor Degree in Kinesiology

The mission of the Kinesiology program is to advance students’ understanding of relationships among movement, exercise, and skill that occur in the contexts of development, learning, rehabilitation, and training.

The program seeks to prepare future professionals for movement-related fields such as teaching, coaching, personal exercise, training and fitness, allied health, and athletic training. Learning occurs through the study of movement and exercise processes within a framework that emphasizes the clinical and practical implications of theory and research.
