Kinesiology, Bachelor of Science

Available: On Campus

The curriculum of the Bachelor of Science in kinesiology integrates the physiological, bio-mechanical, 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.


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


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 sports science. Students can select from a wide variety of minors with this concentration.

Students pursuing physical education teacher education will double major in kinesiology and secondary education.
