Empowering Leadership Through Exercise
The Kinesiology Department’s motto is “Exercise for life, exercise for everyone,” and our coursework is focused on improving the health of individuals and communities through exercise. Our curriculum builds on foundational knowledge and theory in topics of exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor control, and exercise psychology. Our classroom experience is grounded in themes of evidence-based practice, professional skill-building, and community engagement. Required internships encourage students to reflect on and apply the knowledge they gain at Seattle U, and the Human Performance Lab exposes students to multiple types of research equipment.
