Kinesiology and Movement
The minor in kinesiology and movement is a program for the interdisciplinary study of the physical body, musculature, and movement. The minor combines the study of the natural sciences and social sciences to prepare students for interactions with athletes, patients, and other individuals, emphasizing how social and environmental factors can and do affect the physical and psychological limits and capabilities of the body.
Students choosing the kinesiology and movement minor have an opportunity to do internships in training rooms on campus, at local hospitals, clinics, and schools, or to develop internship and research opportunities during study abroad programs. The minor in kinesiology and movement is highly complementary with majors in psychology, health and society, biochemistry, physics, and biology, and is suitable for those pursuing advanced degrees in sports medicine, public health, physical education, biomechanics, and physical therapy.
