About the Department
The mission of the Kinesiology and Public Health Department is to prepare students to be leading professionals through education, research and practical experience. Our students make an impact in the fields of exercise science, physical activity, public health, disease prevention and treatment.
The vision of the Kinesiology and Public Health Department is a world where all people engage in physical activity and other healthful behaviors across their lifespan.
Our faculty actively include students in their various research endeavors. Faculty and student research assistants have published in professional journals and have presented research findings at state, regional, national and international conferences.
The Kinesiology and Public Health Department offers a bachelor's of science degree in Kinesiology and effective Fall 2018 a bachelor's of science in Public Health.
We are proud of our programs and have developed an excellent reputation throughout the state and region. Our students experience hands-on learning in some of the best laboratory facilities in the nation and the faculty are leaders in their areas of expertise. There are a wide range of career opportunities available to kinesiology majors.
The master's of science degree in kinesiology will not be accepting applications for the 2018-2019, and 2019-2020 school years. We are currently working to evaluate and improve our program. Please check back in the future for further updates.
