Kinesiology at King's

At King's, kinesiology isn't just about movement, physiology, or a particular sport – it's about understanding how everything from fitness and nutrition to stress play a role in a person's total wellness. This approach is essential in order to understand our responsibility in wellness as part of God's creation.

From lifestyle issues, the social and cultural aspect of sports, studying the human body, and the movement and strategies for particular sports, students gain the knowledge and practical skills they need to help others live a lifestyle that's healthier for them.

Studying kinesiology at King's also connects students to hands-on work opportunities and encourages them to pursue a particular area of interest with practicums and special topics study.

King's kinesiology professors and staff are committed to:

  • Fostering a holistic understanding of humanity as factors affecting wellness.
  • Giving guidance and support to journeys into a healthier lifestyle.
  • Providing hands-on learning opportunities for students through an introduction to a variety of sports.

Kinesiology from a Christian perspective

King's professors teach about human health and wellness from the perspective that humans are God's loved creation that have a responsibility to take care of their bodies. Students will learn to better understand how lifestyle affects the whole person in glorifying God and how to help others in their journey.
