Movement Science majors study the human body – not only how it moves, but also how it’s affected by disease, age, emotion, and exercise. Many of these students go on to graduate school and/or careers in medicine, pharmacy, public health, or physical and occupational therapy. They love the “macro” human body experience that kinesiology gives them in addition to the “micro” experience of biology and chemistry.
The Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM) Program offers Movement Science undergraduate students the opportunity to study a rapidly-growing field that involves the monitoring of the central and peripheral nervous systems of patients undergoing surgical procedures.
Sport Management majors study the business of sport – the economic impact of teams and venues, sport consumer behavior, relationship marketing, fundraising, and operations. They experience hands-on learning with dynamic internships, cross-campus student-run organizations, and collaborative class projects. Many of these students will begin careers at corporate entities, while others will pursue post-graduate studies in business or law.
Health and Fitness majors study how behavior, including diet and exercise, can minimize the effects of illness, injury, and other health issues in humans of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. These students are interested in corporate wellness, personal training, coaching, teaching, and non-profit community organizations – and are passionate about optimizing quality of life at all ages.
