The Kinesiology Program is committed to the study and research of human movement in all its dimensions. Undergraduate study focuses on exercise stress, movement efficiency, and fitness; the social, cultural, and psychological aspects of participation in physical activity and sport; coordination, control and skill physical activity; physical growth, development, and body form throughout the lifespan; the effects of therapeutic techniques of kinesiology upon recovery from physical injury; and the instructional process of teaching/coaching of physical activity and sport.

To obtain a minor, students must complete 12 hours of foundational courses and 9 hours within an
area of specialization, including at least 6 hours of 300- and 400-level courses. To learn more about obtaining a minor in Kinesiology, please visit here
