Kinesiology

Major, Minor

Study the sciences of human movement and choose from a concentration in integrative physiology or motor behavior.

Students in the kinesiology program (previously known as exercise science) are taught by faculty members from diverse disciplines and gain hands-on experience. They have access to a cadaver-dissection laboratory and an array of instrumentation to support research and instruction in the physiological, biomechanical and psychomotor domains.

Students interact closely with our faculty, particularly during the design and implementation of capstone projects. They also benefit from our strong ties to leading health professions programs at Pacific and beyond, including a 3/2 pathway to a master’s degree in athletic training from the College of Health Professions.

Our graduates of our Kinesiology program are critical, articulate and thoughtful problem solvers with deep research skills. They are prepared for a wide variety of graduate studies and employment opportunities.
