The program in Kinesiology emphasizes knowledge and awareness of human movement and performance related to the major sub-disciplines and their interactions. Courses will present the historical and philosophical foundations of kinesiology and its development over the years as an academic discipline.
The fundamentals of human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics will be examined to provide a framework from which to begin an in-depth study of human movement. The physiological responses and adaptations that the body makes to exercise and movement will be considered. The effect of selected psychological variables on human performance, the acquisition and development of motor skills, and the control of human movement will be probed. Research related to the study of human movement and related areas will be explored in an attempt to apply the information to future movements, regardless of whether the movement is in everyday activities or performed in a sport or athletic event.
Students may elect to seek licensure to teach after completing the requirements listed under the Department of Education page.
