The B.S. programs are designed to increase general knowledge of the broad field of kinesiology and to prepare students for a wide variety of professions related to physical activity and sport. Future programs will be directed toward the study of the science and culture of exercise, sport and human movement.

In all programs, professional preparation is enhanced by the development of focused areas and minors that allow some specialization for those students who already have an interest in a specific aspect of kinesiology. Some programs include theory and activity courses while others involve practical internship experience and clinical experience. Elective hours may also be used to enroll in a study abroad program.
