Curriculum Guide Sheet (pdf)

Course Descriptions

The Kinesiology curriculum is focused on the art and science of movement, including its social, psychological, physiological and biomechanical aspects. The main purpose of the major is to teach students how to live active and healthy lives and to use that knowledge to provide leadership and be of service to others in educational, sports and clinical settings. The Kinesiology major also provides students with the background to pursue post-graduate educational opportunities in areas such as physical therapy.

Kinesiology Major Requirements

Students should become familiar with the requirements for their individual programs and work with their advisors to ensure that all degree requirements will be met. A guide sheet is extremely helpful in academic planning. Students wishing to major in Kinesiology may access a downloadable version (pdf) of the guide sheet at the top of this page, or he or she may obtain one from his or her Faculty Advisor or from the Registrar. The student has the ultimate responsibility for seeing that all academic requirements are being met.
