“Kinesiology, for me, is a gateway for getting into Physician Assistant school. With my busy schedule of being a husband, father of two, and a full time employee, Concordia’s Accelerated Degree Program afforded me the opportunity to take classes as a full time student with an already busy lifestyle.”
