Kinesiology addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms. Applications of Kinesiology to human health include biomechanics and orthopedics; strength and conditioning; sport psychology; methods of rehabilitation, such as physical and occupational therapy; and sport and exercise. Individuals who have earned degrees in Kinesiology can work in research, the fitness industry, clinical settings, and in industrial environments. Studies of human and animal motion include measures from motion tracking systems, electrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function, and other behavioral and cognitive research techniques.
Check the Kinesiology department website for more information and a list of the degrees and certificates offered. Classes in Physical Education and Health may also be relevant. Check with a counselor to see what classes are currently required for these degrees.
