Kinesiology & Athletics

Our ​ Kinesiology and Athletics program offers a wide variety of courses for academic goals and personal health. The academic programs in kinesiology and sports science can prepare you for a variety of health-related careers. The array of activity classes we offer provide the opportunity to develop, refine, or advance skills and knowledge in fitness, individual and team sports, or eastern movement studies. We also offer fitness experiences for community members through our non-credit program as well as students with special needs through our Adapted Program. We also support intercollegiate men's basketball and women's volleyball teams. If you know the general idea of Kinesiology is a field you want to pursue, but not the specific major yet, find the Launchpad below for a list of good classes to get you started in that direction.
