What Is Kinesiology and Health?
Kinesiology and Health (formerly known as physical education) is the study of healthy living and movement patterns related to fitness and physical activities.
Why Study Kinesiology and Health?
Developing a healthy lifestyle is one of the most important things someone can do. To help others do the same makes a real impact. In a culture where health and physical education rule, understanding the science of human movement and the positive implications of a healthy society can change lives.
A note on pathways: A pathway is an advising guide to help students prepare for their intended bachelor’s degree major. By following the course of study outlined in the appropriate Associate of Arts or Associate of Science pathway, students will have the necessary prerequisite courses to continue in their chosen disciplines. A pathway is not a major and will not be represented on the diploma.
Students may choose between a pathway that begins preparation for a teaching career, or a non-teaching pathway in Kinesiology and Health with a focus on one of three areas: Exercise Science, Personal Trainer or Health Coach.
