Department of Kinesiology

Learn to glorify God through maintaining healthy lifestyles and lead others in the pursuit of wellness attitudes and activities.

Academic programs are offered that lead to Missouri teacher certification in grades K-12, K-9, and 9-12 in physical education. The department also offers certification programs in health education.

Students desiring to pursue a career in a sports-related area other than teaching may pursue a major in Sports Management.
