I chose Concordia because of the positive environment I felt when I visited the campus. A unique thing about the Kinesiology program is every course you take is a different career path you can pursue. I loved that I could visualize how applicable each course was to the real world. I was able to get a ‘hands-on’ experience in various kinesiology fields including physical therapy, sports administration, coaching, and motor development. As a result, I knew what my calling was when I graduated; the program prepared me to pursue a career as a higher education professional, specifically in athletics.
