Kinesiology is the study of human movement. Studying Kinesiology at Alverno College prepares students to improve health outcomes or work in sports leadership. From helping a patient in rehabilitation to working in the business side of sports, students will complete core work in the sciences and humanities, then focus in on their chosen track.

This program offers two tracks:

The pre-physical therapy track is for students who want to examine how the body can function better, which is excellent preparation for pursuing a doctoral degree in physical therapy. The sport management track is for students who want to work in the business side of sports.

You’ll have access to many potential internship and job sites, including hospitals and health care organizations, major corporations, health-related nonprofit organizations, minor and major league sports organizations, and more.
