The department’s mission is to research, teach, and apply knowledge related to movement, exercise, and human occupation with the ultimate goal of enhancing human health, productivity, and quality of life.
Exercise and Movement Science (EMS) is a degree option within the Department of Kinesiology. It is considered a pre-professional program that culminates in a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. Graduates are prepared to continue their studies at a graduate or professional level in a variety of health-related fields or to begin their career in one of several exercise and wellness-related professions.
The foundation of the program is grounded in basic math and science coursework including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Human Anatomy, Physiology, Psychology, and Statistics. EMS core courses examine how the body responds to physical activity, the role of physiological and psychological factors in exercise, mechanics driving movement, and how movement is controlled, learned, and developed over the lifespan.
