Kinesiology is a discipline emphasizing the study of human movement as it relates to health, physical activity and exercise, disease prevention and treatment, and physical rehabilitation. Using human models and reflecting research ranging from basic to applied, undergraduate students in the program gain a disciplinary knowledge of the anatomical, biomechanical, developmental, neural, physiological and psychological mechanisms underlying human movement. A degree in kinesiology prepares students for graduate study in physical or occupational therapy, physician assistant programs, medicine, and other health-related professional programs.
