BS, Kinesiological Sciences

Kinesiology, the academic discipline that studies physical activity and its impact on health, society, and quality of life, has emerged in recent years as the undergraduate degree of choice for many students seeking careers in a variety of allied health/medical fields, as well as in more traditional areas such as fitness, health promotion, physical education, recreation, and sport.

These include professional graduate schools in medicine, physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy, athletic training and chiropractic medicine. Depending on the student’s interest, preparation for a career in public health, nutrition, exercise physiology, motor control, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, and personal training is also available. The core courses in the kinesiology degree provide a broad foundation of human movement study along with the opportunity to acquire all the needed prerequisites for graduate and/or professional school. Students will encounter a strong foundation of science courses that integrates hands-on applications applying theory into practice. Students complete their program with a culminating internship experience in the health sciences, fitness and wellness, or sport performance related fields.
