The Department of Human Biology and Kinesiology is committed to academic excellence in the classroom and laboratory to increase students' knowledge of the structure and function of the human body and to fulfill prerequisite requirements for students interested in pursuing graduate work in the various fields of Kinesiology (the study of human movement) and allied health fields.  Currently the department does not offer a major or a minor, but is dedicated to supporting students in achieving their academic goals.

We provide hands-on, applied laboratory and research opportunities for those students who wish to increase their exposure to and understanding of the science of human movement studies, such as human anatomy, human physiology, exercise physiology, and human nutrition.

We strive for integration with the Natural Sciences Division faculty to improve the opportunities for students who wish to continue their studies in fields such as kinesiology, exercise physiology, human anatomy, physical therapy, medicine, and other allied health fields.
