The Department of Kinesiology studies physical activity and human movement, exploring their impact on health, well-being, and quality of life at the individual and societal levels. Our faculty and students examine movement from neuromechanical, physiological, biomechanical, psychological, and sociological perspectives.

Our faculty train doctoral students to become highly competent investigators capable of performing and eventually directing competitive research programs.

Our department conducts state-of-the-art research in integrative kinesiology.
