Kinesiology


Definition of Kinesiology: “the academic discipline which involves the study of physical activity and its impact on health, society, and quality of life.”

Consistent with Thomas Jefferson’s ideal that “a strong body makes the mind strong,” the mission of the Kinesiology program is to advance the discovery, development, interpretation, dissemination, and application of knowledge that relates the study and practice of human movement and physical activity to health and well-being.
