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.

The Department of Kinesiology is a member of the American Kinesiology Association logo for American Kinesiology Association
