The Department of Kinesiology
The mission of the Kinesiology Department at San Diego Christian College is to prepare students to better serve God through the field of Kinesiology in the world of sports medicine, teaching, coaching and fitness across the lifespan.
Kinesiology is the study of human movement. The term is used in higher education institutions to describe a multifaceted field of study in which movement or physical activity is the primary focus. Physical activity includes exercise for health promotion and physical fitness, activities of daily living, and involves special populations such as children, elderly, persons with injury or disease and athletes.
The curriculum is organized to prepare students for:
- Careers in the broad fields of sport and wellness promotion, performance technology, sports ministry, coaching, and teaching.
- Graduate work in the health sciences and kinesiology for research and/or college teaching.
- Professional schools in paramedical and the allied health care field.
