Prospective Student Information
Both incoming freshman or transfer students are welcome in the Department of Kinesiology, but transfer students are encouraged to meet with department faculty members in order to discuss program requirements.
Kinesiology is defined as the study of human movement. This is accomplished through a wide variety of methods and for a large range of purposes. Some students are interested in helping clients to improve sports performance, other are interested in helping people rehabilitate from injury, and still others are interested in helping people meet fitness and body composition goals.
We offer two majors: Athletic Training and Kinesiology. Students in the Athletic Training major learn to work with athletes in immediate and long-term injury situations as well as helping athletes and teams condition for their sports. Students in the Kinesiology major learn to help a diverse set of clientele meet fitness, performance and body composition goals. We prepare students to work in the allied health and fitness industries.
