Our mission is to disseminate new knowledge across diverse subdisciplines in Kinesiology while preparing students for careers in school, community, rehabilitative, health, medical, sport, and athletic settings. Consistent with the vision of the University of Alabama, we have a student-centered faculty committed to high quality teaching, research, and service endeavors.
We offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in Kinesiology with areas of study focused on Exercise Science and Sport Pedagogy/Physical Education. Housed in Wade Hall, our students and faculty utilize multiple state-of-the-art laboratories and workspaces in the pursuit of their personal and professional goals.
