Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology
The B.S. in Kinesiology is a broad-based program offering students training in the multiple sub-disciplines of Kinesiology (Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Health, Motor Behavior, and Sport and Exercise Psychology/Sociology). As such, the curriculum and coursework in the Kinesiology B.S. degree program is designed to meet the mission of preparing students to be leaders in the fields of physical activity, health, and disease prevention and treatment.
All undergraduate students will complete a common curriculum that incorporates the scientific and clinical knowledge of exercise science, health promotion and nutrition as applied in preventative, clinical, commercial fitness, public health and educational settings. Students can then choose to follow one of two professional tracks that are designed to provide additional depth of knowledge and coursework requirements to meet eligibility for pursuing certification in two different areas – a) exercise science and b) health promotion. The exercise science professional track prepares students for national exams for American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Certification. The health promotion professional track prepares students to meet the competencies and seven responsibilities for Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) as identified by the 2010 Health Education Job Analysis. Students who complete this track are eligible to take the CHES exam. General Questions about the B. S. program may be addressed to Dr. Camille O'Bryant email: firstname.lastname@example.org
