A BS degree in kinesiology prepares students for graduate study in physical or occupational therapy, physician assistant programs, medicine and other health-related professional programs. In order to be successful in these programs, students need to have a deep understanding of how the human body works.

In kinesiology, all aspects of human function are studied, but it is done from the perspective of human movement. The curriculum provides a scientifically inclusive approach to human movement, studying mechanical, anatomical, neural, developmental, physiological and psychological mechanisms. This gives students in the program a well-rounded understanding of all aspects of human function as it pertains to movement and exercise.
