The Department of Kinesiology, Leisure and Sport Sciences offers two different baccalaureate degree programs: B.S. in Physical Education with concentrations in K-12 Teacher Education and Exercise Science 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 Exercise Science concentration prepares students to work in fitness management, wellness programs, and exercise prescription/rehabilitation. 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, Leisure and Sport Sciences 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.
