Undergraduates majoring in Kinesiology can choose from one of four concentrations: exercise science, fitness leadership, exercise bioenergetics or physical education teacher certification. We also offer two undergraduate minors in Kinesiology.

Kinesiology Laboratories

There are two kinesiology laboratories at UAB. The Exercise Physiology Laboratory and the Exercise and Nutritional Physiology Laboratory are used for data collection, training, and scientific inquiry and are open to kinesiology graduate students and undergraduate honors students. Students use the laboratories for their theses, honors projects, internships, and field experiences.

Department of Human Studies Honors Program

High-achieving students in the fitness leadership concentration with an overall GPA of 3.5 or greater have the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor in order to complete either a research or a civic engagement honors project. Interested students should secure a faculty mentor and identify a project during their junior year.
