Our aim is to develop professionals committed to engaging with diverse communities in ways that help all individuals reach their full potential. We are dedicated to appreciating differences in perspective, identity, and experience through cultivating class environments, curriculum, and pre-professional opportunities that align with the spirit of inclusion.
Welcome from the Director
Faculty and students in our department examine human movement from a physiological, biomechanical, developmental and psychosocial perspective. Undergraduates receive a B.S. in Kinesiology, with coursework focusing on either Exercise Science (ES) or Physical & Health Education Teacher Education (PHETE). The ES concentration prepares students for careers in area such as strength and conditioning, personal training, corporate wellness, and cardiac rehabilitation. Many of our Exercise Science graduates choose to continue their education in order to pursue various health-related professional programs such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant and medicine.
