Michigan Kinesiology offers undergraduate programs with exceptional learning opportunities for those passionate about health and wellness, business, and sports. Our faculty and students are engaged in a wide range of research and activities -- from the role of neuromuscular systems to the business of sport; from ways to prevent sport injuries to new directions in health and fitness.

We provide an environment that supports valuable discovery and innovation experiences both inside and outside the classroom, including opportunities in research, internships, volunteering, and study abroad.
If you’re interested in the human body, you should consider studying Movement Science. The curriculum includes coursework, laboratory research, and out-of-class activities that are excellent preparation for careers in health care. Our Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM) program falls under the Movement Science major, and prepares students for a new and rapidly growing field.
Sport Management is the perfect field for students who are interested in combining their love of sports with a career in business. Our graduates pursue careers in marketing, operations, law, sponsorship, finance, and many other fields.
Applied Exercise Science (formerly known as Health and Fitness) is a good choice for students who are interested in assessing and promoting physical activity throughout all stages of life. AES majors work directly with athletes, patients, clients, and fellow industry professionals (doctors, nutritionists, etc.).
Athletic Training master's students study the treatment, prevention, and rehabilitation of injuries. Many go on to work with elite athletes on some of the greatest athletic teams in the world. Others use their AT skills in orthopedic medical professions.
