What can students earn?

Undergraduates majoring in Kinesiology may earn a B.S. degree in Kinesiology or a B.S. dual degree with majors in nutrition and exercise science. Many students leverage this degree to enter graduate and professional schools in preparation for careers in exercise physiology, exercise behavioral science, physical therapy, pharmacy, medicine, dietetics, biomechanics, exercise and sport psychology, and other related fields.
