Investigating the mechanical, neurological, biochemical, physiological, and behavioral components of human movement.

The Department of Kinesiology offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of human movement. Kinesiology majors use tools from molecular biology, neuroscience, engineering, medicine, and computer science to work on unique problems in a diverse array of settings that include laboratories, hospitals, health and wellness centers, and field environments. They are prominent in the health and fitness industry, in the health care system, and in the growing biotechnology industry, particularly in areas related to cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and metabolic health.
