About Kinesiology

Exercise Science, Exercise Physiology, and Fitness Leadership
The Exercise Physiology (Master's), Exercise Science (Undergraduate) and Fitness Leadership (Undergraduate) concentrations study the science of human movement. Kinesiology graduates work with individuals, groups, families, caregivers and healthcare professionals to apply the principles of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology and psychomotor behavior to improve health, function and performance. Our program is based on the latest evidence-based research and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) standards.

Teacher Certification
The Physical Education Teacher Certification concentration prepares teachers and athletic coaches to implement developmentally appropriate physical activities that enhance the quality of life for all individuals across their life spans. Our concentration is based on current research and the standards and recommendations of the Society of Health and Physical Education (SHAPE America), the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
