What is Kinesiology? 

Kinesiology is the science of human movement, and it involves study of biology, exercise, and athletics. Earning a degree in kinesiology leads to a variety of careers. Kinesiology involves the study of human movement and brings together a number of different fields, including physiology, neuroscience, fitness and exercise science. Kinesiologists explore how people of different ages and fitness levels use their motor skills. Kinesiology knowledge can be applied to everything from sports management and fitness, to physical education and rehabilitation programs for people with diseases, disabilities, or injuries.
