Available on Campus Campus Available as a Hybrid Hybrid

Kinesiology and exercise science professionals study the basics of mechanics and anatomy, especially in relation to humans and body movement. Education is available at many levels, ranging from associate's to doctoral degrees. Exercise science and kinesiology are two closely related fields of study, often used interchangeably with one another. These sciences are concerned with the human body and aspects of its movements. Exercise science focuses on the effects physical activity has on the human body. Common areas of study in kinesiology might include biomechanics, exercise physiology and motor control. A variety of careers are available in the fields of exercise science and kinesiology, including personal fitness training, sports management, athletic training, coaching and recreational therapy jobs. Graduates of an exercise science and kinesiology program may also pursue careers in the fields of medicine or education.
