We create and disseminate new knowledge related to physical activity, sports, and physical education. We prepare scholars and researchers, physical education teachers, and sport specialists to deliver education, sport, and rehabilitative services for all segments of society. This includes special populations such as children, the elderly, athletes, and persons with disability, injury and disease.
We offer degree programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level in exercise science, physical education and sport management. These programs will apply knowledge, principles, and methods from the behavioral, biological, medical, and physical sciences to the study of physical activity and sport.
All physical education courses that satisfy UGA's PE requirement are taught by graduate students in the Department of Kinesiology. If you are unsure which class is best for you, or have some questions about the requirement, please download our information sheet first.
By working in the Ramsey Center, students enjoy a wealth of hands-on experience in our many research labs. Work closely with faculty and peers who share your research interests.
In the Department of Kinesiology, there are assistantships available in three areas: research, labs, and teaching. Gain professional experience while earning tuition remission.
We aspire to be a global leader in creating physical activity knowledge, programs, and services while positively impacting the State of Georgia, the United States, and other nations by developing scholars and practitioners who study and promote physical activity, exercise, and sport.
