Dr. Mike Ramsey, Department Chair

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

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.
