MISSION
The Department of Kinesiology advances the understanding and practice of human movement across the lifespan within the context of a diverse and changing society.

VISION
We aspire to be a premier kinesiology department recognized nationally and internationally for our creation, dissemination, and application of high quality knowledge related to human physical activity across the sub disciplines of kinesiology. This entails:

  • The best well-rounded scientific and humanistic undergraduate and graduate kinesiology and athletic training curricula that delivers cutting edge knowledge through high impact practices.
  • The production of nationally and internationally recognized basic and applied research that advances the understanding and practice of human movement across the lifespan.
  • Leadership in the field of kinesiology and its sub disciplines through professional service and community outreach.
  • A community that embraces diversity and inclusivity of students, faculty, and research interests related to human movement
  • A department faculty that maintain the highest integrity and ethical principles in their teaching and research and foster those standards in students within the department and larger university.

CURRICULUM
The Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Kinesiology offer students concentrations in Exercise Science, Fitness and Health Promotion, Gerokinesiology, Pre-Allied Health, Sport Studies, and Teacher Education (BS only). An undergraduate Minor in Kinesiology is also available. Degrees in Kinesiology offer advanced study and research opportunities in one or more of the sub-disciplines of Kinesiology: Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Motor Control/Learning, Philosophical Perspectives, Sport and Exercise Psychology, or Socio-cultural Perspectives. 

The intra-disciplinary focus of the Department’s curriculum fosters the development of diverse values and skills important to a liberal arts education: Critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, verbal and written communication, and technological competency.
The Department provides general education courses and university-wide opportunities for development of skills and knowledge leading to lifelong enjoyment of physical activity, health, and well-being. Internships, independent study, and scholarly outreach provide opportunities for collaboration with and service to the community.
