Movement is a part of our everyday lives and the central focus of the undergraduate Kinesiology (KINES) program at Penn State is examining our physical activity — ranging from the basic mechanisms of human movement to the complex dynamics of physical activity in the context of human health and well-being.

KINES offers three flexible undergraduate programs:

With curriculum options that vary by campus — this multifaceted program includes coursework that addresses the complex physiological, biomechanical, and psychological mechanisms that power body movement. In-depth coursework empowers our students to use basic, clinical, social science, and humanities-based methodologies to provide outstanding service and outreach within the field of kinesiology and individual communities. By taking advantage of the many unique hands-on learning and research opportunities, you’ll hone your critical thinking skills and become well positioned for either advanced study or a career in various forms of therapy, athletic training, fitness instruction, and many health and wellness related fields.
