Kinesiology is the study of human movement from both a theoretical and applied perspective.


To gain a complete understanding of human movement, students in kinesiology and physical education approach the topic from a physiological, psychological, and sociological perspective. Not only do they begin to understand how and why we move, but they will also gain knowledge on how we can optimize the human potential for motor skill performance.
