What will I learn?

Kinesiology majors study human movement, the physical activity involved in work and play. Many of our graduates work as athletic directors, athletic trainers, coaches, teachers, personal trainers and sports managers; others continue on to medical school or receive advanced degrees in physical therapy. A charter member of the American Kinesiology Association, our department is a recognized leader in the CSU system as well as in kinesiology education and other allied health professions throughout the country. We offer bachelor's degrees in kinesiology, athletic training, and teaching, and a master's degree in kinesiology that allows degree candidates to focus on athletic training, exercise physiology, sport management, sport studies, and other areas of specialization. We support several student organizations, including SPATO, the athletic training club; the Adapted Physical Activity Club, a student service organization that advocates for individuals with disabilities; the Pre-PT Club; and the Kinesiology Ambassadors' Club, which seeks to spread information about the field of kinesiology.

Satisfactory completion of the requirements of the four-year major program in kinesiology leads to a BS degree. The program is based upon the discipline of kinesiology and stresses both theoretical and practical objectives. Five areas of specialization.
