A Kinesiology major will prepare you for a variety of fields related to sports and exercise science. Common career paths include:
Our courses prepare students to enter fields like coaching, athletic training, and personal training upon graduation, pending certification. Students interested in graduate education will be well-prepared and have the prerequisite courses for a variety of programs related to exercise science.
These are integral to the Kinesiology major.
Students in the "generalist" and "fitness and wellness supervisor" specializations are required to enroll in our senior-level internship course (KIN 4310) as a component of their degree program.
Pre-physical therapy (PT) students will have to perform internship/observation hours as an element of the admissions process for graduate PT programs. As a result, the internship course is built into the pre-PT degree specialization.
Due to the diverse interests of our students, we allow them to arrange their own internships rather than pre-arranging them. Instructors are always eager, however, to assist students in setting up an internship. Recent students have done internships with the Texas Stars, local high schools, nearby physical therapy clinics, and even summer camps.
In each course, we strive to make the material relevant to our students.
Our goal in every course is to help students gain detailed knowledge that will help them become competent professionals many fields related to exercise science.
