Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology

Program Overview

The curriculum of the Bachelor of Science in kinesiology integrates the physiological, biomechanical, and psycho-social bases of movement. Students develop their own movement skills which transition into a focus on movement analysis, physiological function, and skill assessment. Students finish the program with strong theoretical and problem solving skills based on a comprehensive knowledge of movement and exercise science.


The applied exercise science concentration will prepare you for a career in corporate and commercial fitness. This is also the pre-occupational therapy degree.

The clinical exercise science concentration focuses on clinical and research settings. This is also the pre- physical therapy, chiropractic, or occupational therapy degree.

The kinesiology-generalist concentration provides students with training in general movement and sport science. Students can select from a wide variety of minors with this concentration.

Students pursuing physical education teacher education (PETE) will minor in secondary education and an additional content area that is taught in public schools.


Students pursuing either exercise science concentration complete a professionally supervised 6-credit, 400-hour internship.
