Our department is dedicated to innovation in and the promotion of health science. Our students and faculty study human movement, health behavior, and sport culture. Each program is designed to expose students to exciting research and valuable experience in the classroom and through internships. Graduates are prepared to apply their knowledge to improve their communities, pursue a range of graduate school opportunities, and contribute to the world of sports and public health.
Each of our master’s, doctoral, and undergraduate programs explore different topics within kinesiology and health education. We provide our students with modern research labs, vast historical archives, caring advisors, and field-leading, innovative faculty. These resources allow each student to get the most out of their degree and academic experience.
Undergraduate students can choose from majors and minors that cover health science and promotion as well sport management and culture. Students are prepared to become teachers, therapists, coaches and doctors.
Master’s and Doctoral programs are designed to educate students while exposing them to impactful research and real-world work experience. The combination of coursework, internships and research prepare students for a meaningful career.
