Professors and a student  conducting concussion research.

The Kinesiology Department at Penn State's College of Health and Human Development has built a long-standing reputation of excellence in the study of physical activity — from the basic mechanisms of human movement to the complex dynamics of physical activity in society, as a whole.

Our approach is shaped by diverse far-ranging perspectives, and we take pride in leveraging basic, clinical, social science, and humanities methodologies to provide outstanding service and outreach to the field of kinesiology and our community.
