Department of Kinesiology

At USciences, we promote healthy lifestyles—and we educate our students to do the same. Through teaching, research, and service, our kinesiology students have many opportunities to apply their learning throughout the University and in the community.

We value diversity in all forms, appreciating people from all backgrounds, studying movement from a wide range of perspectives, and fostering different types of thinking. This enables us to understand—and teach—a full spectrum of practices that improve health, well-being, and physical performance.
