KINESIOLOGY (KIN)
[SEE ALSO ATHLETICS AND SPORTS FITNESS]
The Kinesiology and Athletics Department offers Kinesiology
curriculum with a wide variety of courses to accommodate
varying fitness levels, interests, and abilities, including:
cardiovascular training, strength training, mind/body courses
like yoga, cycling, as well as individual sport activities such
as swimming, tennis, badminton, and track and fled. Team
sport activities such as volleyball, basketball, water polo,
football, and baseball are also available for skills training and
intercollegiate athletics preparation. Kinesiology lecture courses
are also available for aspiring fitness professionals and transfer
students. Students will not only learn how to perform activities
with proper technique, but they will learn principles of exercise
science and biomechanics that can be applied to their training.
Athletics team classes are listed under “Athletics (ATHL)” in
the catalog. Additional fitness courses are available under our
related “Sports Fitness (SPFT)” area in the catalog.
Activity courses are grouped by similar content. Courses in each
grouping may only be taken once with a passing grade. Please
note that many activity courses are offered with varying skill
levels. Students should enroll in an activity class which is most
appropriate for their skill level. Students may then progress
through the series of courses as personal skill develops.
