KINS students timing a run

Welcome to the Department of Kinesiology!

Kinesiology (from the Greek words "KINEIN", to move, and "LOGOS", to study) is defined as the study of human movement. Whether your interests are in personal fitness, athletic training, coaching, teaching, health and wellness, or one of our pre-professional programs like cardiac rehabilitation or physical therapy, we offer several outstanding major and minor programs to meet your educational goals, as well as a comprehensive physical activity and wellness program. 

Our varied programs stimulate intellectual development, instill leadership qualities, and promote service to others. We engage the community through our outreach partnerships and opportunities. To find out more about our Cancer Recovery & Fitness, Community Fitness, Home School Physical Education, and Physical activity and Recreation for Individuals with Disabilities in the Eau Claire area (PRIDE) programs, please use the Outreach link above.
