Kinesiology Program Overview

The word kinesiology refers to the study of human movement, and the School of Natural Sciences uses it as an umbrella term that includes several different academic programs. In the undergraduate program, the Department of Kinesiology has three Bachelor of Arts emphases and two Bachelor of Science emphases. The B.A. emphases are exercise science, fitness management and physical education teaching. The Bachelor of Science degrees are more academically rigorous and include a research component. The B.S. emphases include exercise physiology and pre-physical therapy/occupational therapy. The Department of Kinesiology also offers two minors: coaching and physical education teaching. A detailed description of each major and each minor follows.
