Department Mission Statement
The mission of the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education is to facilitate change in the individual through the study and application of human movement principles across the life-span, and through the participation in physical activity, exercise, and sport. This is accomplished by providing excellence in instruction, scholarship and service through multidisciplinary approach in: 1) programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels designed to prepare professionals in human movement, sport, and exercise-related careers; 2) courses that promote general education and interdisciplinary concepts; 3) activity courses and programs designed to induce physical, cognitive, and affective adaptations; and 4) specialized service programs for the community. This mission fosters the development and maintenance of behaviors that are essential for a healthy lifestyle for all individuals who make up California's rapidly changing demography.
