Kinesiology - BS, Exercise and Sport Science Track

The Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology offers several tracks designed to prepare students for a variety of careers. The track options available develop a strong science background making students excellent candidates for employment opportunities in human movement/exercise related areas (corporate or private fitness) or advanced graduate studies (motor neuroscience, kinesiology, exercise physiology). Additional program and track information is available on the Department of Kinesiology and Sport Management website or may be obtained by contacting the advising office in the department. 

The Exercise and Sport Science option is offered to students wishing to pursue careers in exercise development and coaching/sport training.  A solid foundation in scientific principles related to the biology of sport, along with the practical knowledge in various areas of coaching (pedagogy) and exercise training will prepare students to be future coaches and trainers. Students planning to pursue a graduate degree in Exercise or Sport Science may enroll in independent study leading to an undergraduate research project.
