School of Kinesiology

     Advising                             KNES Master's Degree

Welcome to the School of Kinesiology. Kinesiology is a diverse field that studies movement of the human body. The fascination that humans universally experience from all types of movement has resulted in the emergence of a number of sub-disciplines. The sub-disciplines include the study of health, exercise, sports, recreation, work, dance, and other forms of creative movement. A student can earn a Kinesiology degree to be employed as Health and Physical Education Teachers, Athletic Trainers, Exercise and Fitness Directors, Sport Managers and in a wide range of Health Promotion and Allied Health Fields. Allied Health careers include, but are not limited to Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Cardiac Rehabilitation and Respiratory Therapy.The faculty and staff will help each student seek a career goal and meet the requirements of their degree program. With this in mind, the faculty believes it is their mission to:
  • Provide technical knowledge and skills through challenging experiences necessary for success in Kinesiology, prepare students for admission into related graduate programs, and promote lifelong physical activity and healthy lifestyles.

  • Engage in scholarship opportunities that result in the acquisition and dissemination of new knowledge, and the amplification of existing knowledge in the various sub-disciplines in Kinesiology.

  • Serve as a resource to the lay and professional community while developing relationships in areas associated with Kinesiology.
