Kinesiology discovery day: promoting physical activity and healthy living to improve the lives of citizens

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

The Department of Kinesiology will host a discovery day for current K-State students who are interested in learning more about kinesiology, what career opportunities are available when majoring in kinesiology, and the work that is happening in their department. The come-and-go event will be hosted from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30 in the K-State Student Union, room 207. Refreshments will be provided.

Students are invited to visit with faculty, the program advisor and student ambassadors to learn about the program, current faculty research and career opportunities for kinesiology graduates.

Kinesiology is the study and application of physical activity applied to health. Coursework integrates biological and behavioral approaches using biomechanical, physiological, psychological, and sociological perspectives to study physical activity from cell to society. This life science discipline emphasizes breadth and depth of content, scientific methodology, and intellectualism for lifelong learning, thinking, and action. Kinesiology promotes an understanding of the necessity of movement activities for an individual's physical and psychological health.

For more information on this event or about the kinesiology program, please contact Becky Gilmore, academic advisor, bgilmore@k-state.edu.
