Kinesiology is the interdisciplinary study of human physical activity. The kinesiology major and courses provide students with opportunities to investigate biological, behavioral, cultural, and pedagogical aspects of exercise and sport behavior. Teaching Concentration courses emphasize theory and application of physical education pedagogy, ethics, and administrative concepts associated with teaching at the elementary and secondary school levels. The Exercise Science Concentration offers a scientific study of physiological, behavioral, and cultural aspects of human physical performance for students interested in fitness and wellness professions and graduate studies in specialized exercise, sport, and health sciences programs. A coaching education program and elective courses are offered to meet the special interests and needs of students.
