Kinesiology

major or honors in Kinesiology provides students with an extensive understanding of human structure and function and their relation to health and movement. Students may choose from the general program or complete the optional concentration in Active Health and Rehabilitation.

The general program offers students the greatest flexibility in tailoring their undergraduate degree to future career paths. The Active Health & Rehabilitation concentration encompasses health and wellness promotion, fitness appraisal, counseling and programming in addition to clinical kinesiology and exercise rehabilitation.
