The Department of Kinesiology, Sport and Recreation Management offers two different baccalaureate degree programs: B.S. in Physical Education with a concentration in K-12 Teacher Education and a B.S. in Sport and Leisure Management with concentrations in Sport Management and Park and Recreation Management.

The K-12 teacher licensure concentration prepares students as professional physical educators in grades K-12. The Sport Management concentration prepares students to work as leaders in the sport industry. The Park and Recreation Management concentration prepares students for leadership roles in the leisure service industry including community, commercial, and natural resource management settings.

The Kinesiology, Sport and Recreation Management department also offers minors in Park and Recreation, Sport Management, Coaching, and Physical Education.

Exercise Science Concentration


The Exercise Science concentration is a multidisciplinary approach to exercise, fitness, and wellness. The primary emphasis is on the effects of exercise on various body systems. Support studies from psychology, health education, and applied human sciences provide a knowledge base in the psychological aspects of health and behavior, generally oriented toward lifestyle maintenance and health promotion/risk reduction.
