Exploring human movement and its impacts on health, society and quality of life

Kinesiology studies human movement from multiple perspectives – biological, behavioral, and socio-cultural – to prepare students to lead and participate in a modern, complex society. Our graduates acquire the knowledge and experiences

  • to prepare for pre-professional training for physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, and other allied health fields
  • to pursue graduate study in exercise science, physical education, adapted physical education, sport management, and public health
  • to work in fitness and sport industries, teaching and coaching, and various allied-health settings

The Kinesiology Department at Sonoma State provides students with well-structured set of curricular and co-curricular experiences, academic advising, and mentorship. Our current and past students credit our small classes, teaching-focused faculty, proactive advising, opportunities to engage in research, and meaningful field experiences for their positive experience in Kinesiology.
