Welcome from Kinesiology

Chris Womack

Welcome to the Department of Kinesiology! Kinesiology involves the study of human movement and our faculty and students do so from a physiological, biomechanical, and psychosocial perspective. Our undergraduate and graduate programs in both Exercise Science and Physical & Health Education Teacher Education prepare students for graduate study as well as careers in health care, fitness, and teaching. Students from across the campus may also take advantage of our minors in Coaching Education, and Sports Communication. Our programs feature outstanding in-class instruction and several opportunities to be involved in research and service opportunities with our faculty. I invite you to peruse our website and contact us with any and all questions you may have about Kinesiology.
