Kinesiology is the new physical education

A Physical Education classIf you go to sign up for a Physical Education course for the Fall semester and can't find any, don't panic. The program still exists – both for majors and minors, and for those taking single classes.

The reason you might not spot the listings right away is that UAB's Physical Education program within the Department of Human Studies in the School of Education has changed its name to Kinesiology (which is the science of movement in the human body).

Physical Education courses now will carry a KIN prefix to reflect the program's name change, and students should review options under that designation when registering. Only the name has changed; Kinesiology offers the same degrees and concentrations offered through the Physical Education program.
