Earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Kinesiology

Kinesiology is the art and science on which growing fields like physical therapy are based — and our Bachelor of Science program prepares students to provide improved physical and mental well-being to patients in a variety of settings.

MC’s kinesiology program is about more than improving range of motion. It’s about improving lives.

Kinesiology is the study of human movement and the effects it has on individuals and culture — both physically and mentally. Kinesiology not only allows us to speed up recovery times through therapy, it also helps prevent injury and disease, promotes mental well being, and offers a chance to improve overall quality of life for individuals and the community.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology prepares students for a broad range of fields in Kinesiology and offers several areas of concentration for a more specialized area of study. The department also offers a minor in Kinesiology.
