Kinesiology is a broad, interdisciplinary field of study that includes specialties such as exercise physiology, biomechanics, sports medicine, sports nutrition, exercise psychology, and anatomy. Areas of inquiry range in scope from the study of molecular response of cells to the response and adaptation of the whole body. The major encompasses a wide spectrum of performance issues involving muscular and cardiovascular physiology, energy balance, exercise adherence, and skill acquisition. The Kinesiology major is applicable to myriad Army Missions. View Kinesiology Curriculum Cutting Edge... The disciplinary focus of the kinesiology major is on physiological, psychological, and mechanical aspects of human movement that are aligned with the Army's training and combat needs. Scientifically Based... The science of human movement has grown exponentially over the last decade. The doctoral training of our faculty and the resources in the Kinesiology lab provide the necessary scientific basis for the advanced study of physical activity and performance. Relevant for the Army... The Department of Physical Education and the Kinesiology program work closely with other Army agencies and civilian universities to develop relevant training protocols for the Army. Honors Program Cadets who meet the academic requirements and wish to enroll in the optional honors program must complete individual research and take the following two courses: (each cadet will work one-on-one with a thesis advisor conducting applicable research in human performance) KN495 PL361 Individual Advanced Development (IAD) The Department of Physical Education works with Army agencies and civilian institutions to develop summer IADs for Kinesiology majors. Please contact Dr. Jesse Germain for further details about the Kinesiology program and IAD experiences.
