Kinesiology B.S. Concentration in Exercise and Movement Sciences
The Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, Concentration in Exercise and Movement Sciences, serves students interested in biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor control, motor learning and development, sport and exercise psychology, sport history, sport sociology, socio-cultural studies of physical activity, urban youth development, and physical or occupational therapy. Qualified students will be equipped with the skills and knowledge needed for advanced study in any of the above-mentioned domains or for employment in fitness settings, physical activity programming, the sports media, sports industries, and as consultants for agencies developing sports policy.
The program examines those factors that influence the form, function, and effectiveness of movement and physical activity across the lifespan and for special populations, such as the disabled and individuals with chronic diseases. The framework for the degree program encompasses three major subject areas: 1) Social Science: the socio-cultural and psychological factors that serve to constrain and/or define human movement, fitness, and physical activity; 2) Movement Science: the factors that influence the neuromotor control, learning, relearning, and development of motor skills and analysis; and 3) Exercise Science: the variables involved in physiology of fitness and health, exercise prescription, and fitness programming in youth and elderly populations.
