Why Kin

As one of the fastest-growing fields nationally and at UNCG, kinesiology’s early years as a profession were devoted almost exclusively to the preparation of physical education teachers and coaches. Now this multifaceted academic discipline centers on the study of physical activity and its impact on health, society, and quality of life. With rigorous interdisciplinary education and experiential learning in applied, clinical, community and research settings, the Department of Kinesiology offers a range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs designed to maximize your opportunities for a diverse range of careers.
