The Department of Kinesiology and Sports Management is within the School of Business. The two majors offered are Kinesiology and Sports Management.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology consists of four different concentrations based on student’s career interests. Kinesiology pre-Physical Therapy prepares students for Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) graduate programs. The Kinesiology pre-occupational therapy program prepares students for Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) graduate programs. The pre-Athletic Training program prepares students to become nationally certified athletic trainers after completing a master’s degree in athletic training. The Kinesiology: Sport Medicine area prepares students for career opportunities in health and wellness working in schools, communities, hospitals, commercial health and fitness clubs, and state, federal and corporate wellness programs.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Management prepares students for career opportunities in various areas of sports management. Students receive a solid background in sports alongside a strong concentration of course work in business. This allows students to develop competencies required for employment in management level positions in the following areas just to name a few: organized sports, professional sports teams, college athletic departments, sports communication, public relations firms, sports agencies, health and fitness facilities, and parks and recreation departments.
The objective of both majors is to provide a Christ-centered learning environment for students to develop a life-long passion for learning, faith, and service to their fellow man.
Yours in Christ,
