About the Program

Kinesiology students examine human health and movement on multiple levels. The study of kinesiology (human movement) prepares you for a wide variety of academic and professional pursuits in both health-related areas (physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician's assistant, nurse practitioner, medicine, public health and nutrition) as well as the fitness industry (exercise physiology, geriatric wellness, sports studies and wellness). Kinesiology faculty also try to get to know you as an individual and engage in meaningful discussion.
