Most kinesiology undergraduate students aspire to attend graduate school. You will feel well-prepared and ahead of the pack when it comes to success in graduate programs because of this program's rigorous curriculum. You also have opportunities to engage in research, community outreach, attend conferences and work one-on-one with faculty.
A BS degree in kinesiology prepares students for graduate study in physical or occupational therapy, physician assistant programs, medicine and other health-related professional programs. In order to be successful in these programs, students need to have a deep understanding of how the human body works.
In kinesiology, all aspects of human function are studied, but it is done from the perspective of human movement. The curriculum provides a scientifically inclusive approach to human movement, studying mechanical, anatomical, neural, developmental, physiological and psychological mechanisms. This gives students in the program a well-rounded understanding of all aspects of human function as it pertains to movement and exercise.
