A World of Movement

Creating professionals in evidence-based sport and exercise science

About the department

Become a leader in the fields of sport and exercise science through a rigorous and practical academic experience

Rooted in Seattle University's Jesuit traditions, the Kinesiology Department is committed to the creation of a learning environment that fosters self-reflection, an appreciation for life-long learning with an emphasis on critical thinking and professionalism.

This is accomplished through

  • small classes and personal attention,
  • access to state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, and
  • opportunities to put into practice the concepts learned in the classroom.

We offer the Bachelor of Science in Sport and Exercise and provide research and outreach through our Research Facilities and Projects.

About the department

It is the guidance and inspiration from mentors like you that help us find our paths.

BS, Sport and Exercise Science

Basic and applied science courses explore how the human body functions during physical activity and exercise.

Apply the principles and concepts of biology, chemistry, physics, anatomy, and physiology, biomechanics, exercise physiology, nutrition and exercise psychology to the study of the human body's responses and adaptions to acute and chronic bouts of physical activity and exercise.

Following graduation, you will be prepared for employment with community, medical, corporate and athletic fitness programs or in the sales or marketing division of exercise and/or medical equipment manufacturers. 

You may choose to continue your studies at the graduate level in fields related to exercise science or allied health.
