Kinesiology (BS)

Kinesiology (formerly Exercise Science) has recently phased out 
tracks in Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) and Physical 
Education Non-Teaching (PYED). A track in Sports and Recreation Management 
has recently been added. Information on this website is as accurate as 
possible but final changes may be made as approvals are send through the 
department and academic councils. KINE tracks are interdisciplinary by 
design with required courses, electives, and laboratory experiences to 
prepare the student for entry into commercial fitness, hospital-based 
fitness, wellness or cardiac rehabilitation, graduate programs in physical 
therapy, occupational therapy, exercise physiology, or wellness promotion. 
This degree offers four concentrations:

  • Pre-Physical Therapy (KINE)(KNPT) will satisfy entrance requirements for graduate programs in physical therapy.
  • Pre-Occupational Therapy (KINE)(KNOT) will satisfy entrance requirements for graduate programs in occupational therapy.
  • Health Promotion (KINE)(KNHP) prepares students for positions in the fitness industry in corporate, hospital or private settings. 
  • Sports and Recreation Management (KSRM)

Kinesiology majors are required to complete at least one internship. See internship information
