Along with studying the latest biomechanics, physiology, and health and wellness principles, our students learn instructional methods for teaching motor coordination, sport skills, physical fitness, and teamwork at various age levels.
Our contemporary program includes diverse learning opportunities from lectures in the classroom to student teaching and other experiential learning opportunities available in our research laboratories and through service learning course mechanisms. Our comprehensive program teaches instructional methods as well as the latest principles in health, wellness, biomechanics, and more.
Work closely with one of our renowned faculty members and help pay for your education through one of our many graduate assistantship opportunities.
Our graduates go on to work in schools and athletic programs at many levels, and keep a strong connection to the Department of Kinesiology. Keep us updated with your latest news.
Physical education is the process of teaching physical activities, sports skills and physical fitness to all segments of the population. It is taught as a course to elementary, middle, high school, and college students to improve their motor coordination, physical fitness, and develop teamwork skills.
These lectures were established to honor alumni and are the centerpiece of the Kinesiology Research Day celebrating UGA Homecoming Weekend.
