A breadth and depth of knowledge of human movement.

Inquire into the breadth and depth of human movement, with an eye towards discovery and action. Kinesiology students examine the sub-disciplines of physiology, biomechanics, sports pedagogy and psychology to best understand the functions of the human body across various fields and practices.

Kinesiology is a hands-on major, meaning students benefit from multiple lab experiences and a focused research project. Using exercise and physical activity as a model, we explore how the body moves, test the effects of physical activity and strive to understand the development of simple and complex motor skills over a life span.
