Kinesiology Program

Acting Chair: Rosanne Keathley (936)-294-1171

Faculty: Brent Estes, Jennifer Didier, Page Glave, Gary Oden, Emily Roper, Jose Santiago, Matthew Wagner, Ryan Zapalac

Mission

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. Learning occurs through the study of movement and exercise processes within a framework that emphasizes the clinical and practical implications of theory and research.

Academic Programs

Highlights

  • Nationally recognized (NCATE) teacher certification program making our majors in high demand by school district administrators.
  • Successful completion of the Athletic Training program prepares individuals to sit for the Advisory Board of Athletic Trainers’ state license.
  • Web-based courses.
  • Outstanding faculty and staff.
  • Value student diversity (various ethnic and cultural backgrounds).
  • Faculty who have worked in the field.

Suggested Minors

  • Teacher Certification students will minor in Education but should select another content area which is taught within the public schools.
  • Exercise Science students should select Health Fitness, General Business or Nutrition as a minor. Biology and Chemistry are minor options for Physical Therapy.
  • Exercise Science Applied students should select Health Fitness, General Business, or Nutrition as a minor. Biology and Chemistry are additional options if CHEM 138 <1311>/ 115<1111> is taken rather than CHEM 135 <1306>/115 <1106>.
  • Exercise Science Clinical students should select Biology, Chemistry, Health Fitness, or General Business as a minor.
    Athletic Training students should select either Health or Biology
  • Athletic Training students should select either Health or Biology as a minor.
  • Kinesiology (non teacher certification) students can choose any content area for a minor.

Internships

Students completing the Exercise Science, Applied Science Applied, and Exercise Science Clinical tracks complete a 6-credit, 400-hour internship at a site which is aligned with their career aspirations under the instruction and supervision of a qualified and experienced professional in the field.

Scholarships

  • Betty Alexander Scholarship—Kinesiology major with at least two years of academic preparation at SHSU having earned a minimum of 3.0 in the major.
  • Department of Health & Kinesiology Scholarship—Health or Kinesiology major demonstrating financial need with a satisfactory GPA.

Program Specific Requirements

Those seeking Teacher Certification must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 (includes transfer and SHSU hours) and must earn a “C” or better in their Kinesiology or Education courses.

Curriculum

The curriculum 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 gain greater depth as they consider problems related to exercise, fitness and motor skill development within the context of lifestyle physical activity (i.e., play, games, sport, and other forms of human motor behavior). Students finish the program with strong theoretical and problem solving skills based on a comprehensive knowledge of movement and exercise science. It is expected that graduates will be able to apply their knowledge and skills to a wide variety of movement-related problems and career possibilities.
