Physical Education: Movement Science

Physical Education

The Movement Science program is designed to begin preparing students for the work and challenges facing the kinesiology professional. Academic preparation in kinesiology provides the foundation for a wide range of careers in fields that are projected to grow, including, but not limited to, exercise physiologist, personal trainer, fitness manager, worksite wellness coordinator, physical therapist, physical therapist assistant, athletic trainer, and group exercise instructor. The Movement Science programs meet the needs of both students seeking career training programs leading to an industry-accepted credential (e.g., personal trainer or group exercise instructor), and those seeking transfer to a four-year institution.

Students will gain an understanding of the principles of exercise physiology and motor development and have the opportunity to apply that knowledge to fitness assessment and exercise techniques. The entrepreneurial aspects of fitness careers will also be explored.
