About the Department
The Department of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science (KRS) prepares professionals in a variety of areas of health and wellness. We offer diverse programs of study at the undergraduate and graduate levels. However, the core of what we do stems from our shared philosophy of considering the whole individual, across the lifespan. KRS encompasses professions and provides training and information from childhood through adulthood, from sedentary individuals to professional athletes, as well as individuals with disabilities and at varying levels of health. Expanding and deepening knowledge in the following intertwined spheres of body (e.g., walking gait mechanics, exercise and HIV, etc), mind (e.g., physical activity and cognitive function, concussions, etc), and social-emotional well-being (e.g., social/behavioral interventions, psychosocial impacts of disability, etc) through research and practice add to KRS students' experiences.
