The BS in Kinesiology Program provides students an opportunity to understand the relationships among movement, exercise, and skill. Learning occurs through the study of movement and exercise processes within a framework that emphasizes the clinical and practical implications of theory and research.

The Kinesiology program prepares students for movement-related careers in:
- Personal exercise
- Community recreation
- City parks and recreation
- Medical sales
