Kinesiology and Health Education Career Paths

Professor Steven Kornguth talking with students during class.

A degree in Kinesiology and Health Education (KHE) opens doors for a wide variety of rewarding careers. Many graduates become entrepreneurs, pursue careers in education, or move into sport management. Others become fitness instructors and personal trainers, helping clients to maximize workouts, meet fitness goals, and improve their overall health and well-being. Many of our alumni go to graduate school in order to pursue careers in healthcare. 

Remember, a degree does not equal a career. Many employers focus on the skills and experiences you have gained during your undergraduate experience rather than on the degree itself.
