Kinesiology and Health Education
Movement Toward a Healthier Life
The Department of Kinesiology and Health Education is dedicated to the innovation and promotion of health science and we offer both undergraduate and graduate programs. Our students and faculty members study human movement, health behavior and sport culture. Each program is designed to expose students to cutting-edge research, internships and classroom experience. We provide students with modern research labs, vast historical archives, helpful advisors and industry-leading, innovative faculty members so each student gets the most out of their degree and academic experience.
Graduates go on to pursue a range of graduate and professional opportunities, applying their knowledge to improve their communities and to help advance the world of sport and health.
