For more than a century, our department has built an outstanding track record in teaching health science, pioneering scientific research, and forming community partnerships and outreach.
We offer a range of programs face-to-face and online, including our leading-edge EdD online doctoral program.
Kinesiology, early on, was devoted to the preparation of physical education teachers and coaches.
Now this multifaceted academic discipline centers on physical activity and its impact on health, society, and quality of life.
We offer rigorous interdisciplinary education and experiential learning in applied, clinical, community and research settings.
