Kinesiology

Our Program

Kinesiology is the study of physical activity as it ranges from basic mechanisms of movement to the complex dynamics of physical activity in the context of human health and well-being. Kinesiology students explore the importance of physical activity across a range of tasks, including exercise, daily living, play, sport and work. Using both biological and behavioral approaches, the program combines biomechanical, physiological and sociological perspectives to examine physical activity from cell to society.
