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
