The major in Kinesiology (BS) offers two concentrations of study: Exercise Science and Physical Education. An Accelerated Master's Program (AMP) is offered for highly motivated students concentrating in Exercise Science.

Exercise Science

Clinical Instructor Neika Morgan
Office: 1022 Wade Hall

Kinesiology majors with a concentration in Exercise Science take coursework designed to prepare them for employment in a number of professional settings and for continued graduate work in a variety of health-affiliated fields. These include options related to physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician's associate, medicine, biomechanics, prosthetics, kinesiotherapy, pharmacy, dentistry, clinical exercise physiology, cardiac rehabilitation, private and corporate wellness, fitness centers/university recreation settings, personal training, group fitness instruction, and strength and conditioning coaching.

Physical Education

Professor Oleg Sinelnikov
Office: 1009 Wade Hall

Clinical Associate Professor Elizabeth Woodruff
Office: 2006 Wade Hall

Kinesiology majors with a concentration in Physical Education study as a cohort. The core classes account for elementary, secondary, and advanced methods that teach students how to use various teaching styles and curriculum models as they relate to different grade and age levels. Early field experiences are embedded within these methods and content courses and serve as preparation for the culminating student-teaching internship. Students also take courses in the exercise sciences, which are foundational to teaching physical education, as well as general education classes.
