What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the study of human movement from both a theoretical and applied perspective.

To gain a complete understanding of human movement, students in kinesiology and physical education approach the topic from a physiological, psychological, and sociological perspective. Not only do they begin to understand how and why we move, but they will also gain knowledge on how we can optimize the human potential for motor skill performance.

There are many different employment opportunities for graduates of Kinesiology. Kinesiologists work in health, sports, industry, business, teaching, rehabilitation, and social settings. Our graduates work in the school system, with amateur or professional sport teams, in private business, with health and fitness related institutions and agencies, and in public community sport, fitness, and physical recreation programs, or child care settings. Upon completion of their degrees, some students pursue graduate studies in Kinesiology or Physical Education at other universities.
