The Department of Kinesiology is committed to providing outstanding learning opportunities for students, new and innovative discoveries through research, and high impact service and outreach activities to the field and the community. Our central focus is the study of physical activity as it ranges from basic mechanisms of human movement to the complex dynamics of physical activity in the context of human health and well-being. Our scholarship is pursued from multiple perspectives, i.e., cells to societies, using basic, clinical, social science, and humanities methodologies.
