Why Pursue a Kinesiology Degree?

An undergraduate degree in kinesiology provides students with a fundamental background in health promotion and disease prevention. Over the last thirty years the rates of obesity and chronic disease have been rising rapidly in both adults and children. An undergraduate program in kinesiology will prepare students to work to curb the national obesity epidemic, improve human movement function, and meet the needs of aging individuals. This degree is the first step on the pathway for a career in physical therapy.

“Kinesiology, for me, is a gateway for getting into Physician Assistant school.
