The Kinesiology undergraduate program offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign provides the student with a broad general education, a departmental core integral to the understanding of the diverse aspects of human movement, and a correlate area of courses specific to the student's area of concentration within Kinesiology.
The Kinesiology program is committed to the study and research of human movement in all its dimensions. Undergraduate study focuses on exercise stress, movement efficiency, and fitness; the social, cultural, and psychological aspects of participation in physical activity and sport; coordinaton, control, and skill of physical activity; physical growth, development, and body form throughout the lifespan; the effects of therapeutic techniques of kinesiology upon recovery from physical injury; and the instructional process of teaching/coaching of physical activity and sport.
The curriculum combines a comprehensive liberal arts and sciences education with in-depth study in a particular area of interest. The program of study provides knowledge and understanding essential for human movement and sport careers in either public or private agencies. The hours required for graduation include prescribed courses for all students as well as requirements determined by the various areas of emphasis selected by the student. Teaching and research emphasize hands-on learning through the use of technology and modern laboratory equipment. Graduates find employment in a variety of fields including teaching, corporate fitness, coaching, and athletic training. Many students continue their education and become physical therapists, physicians, exercise physiologists, and sport psychologists.
