Undergraduate Kinesiology

Our Goal

Our goal is to develop quality exercise science professionals who are capable of providing the highest standard of service and are knowledgeable as exercise specialists and wellness educators. We offer two major programs and three minors. 


Athletic Training

The Athletic Training Program prepares students to become Certified Athletic Trainers — a highly educated and skilled profession specializing in athletic healthcare.

A certified athletic trainer's duties include the prevention, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate care, treatment, rehabilitation and reconditioning of injuries caused during physical activity or athletics.

Exercise Science

The Exercise Science Program provides curriculum content that integrates theory, research and clinical practice to prepare students to function professionally as exercise specialists in health/fitness clubs, corporate health promotion programs, and clinical rehabilitation settings.

This program is also designed to provide prerequisite knowledge for continued education in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy or Medicine.

Students who complete a minor in coaching will graduate with a background in all requirements set forth by the UIL and with a certification for the American Sport Education Program. Students will gain knowledge in first aid and safety techniques, concussion training and will be Red Cross certified in both CPR and AED. 

Exercise Science

Students will be given an opportunity to establish a strong foundation in understanding the human body with emphasis on the relationship of skeletal, muscular, and neurological anatomy and function as it relates to sport and human performance.

Recreational Diving Management (SCUBA)

Students who complete the program will receive instructor certification from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) and SCUBA Diver International/Technical Diver International (SDI/TDI). These certifications provide immediate employment opportunities throughout the diving industry.
