Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement. At Westmont, we have been given the charge to train students to study and celebrate God’s greatest creation – the human body. Our faculty members are passionate about this discipline and the students under their care. Our classes are interactive and relevant, designed to expose students to the entire "umbrella" of kinesiology--biophysical, behavioral and sociocultural. Internships and research experiences are a top priority in our department.
Kinesiology majors have a strong identity to their program of study and go on to serve in many areas of the allied health sciences. Our recent graduates currently serve in the fields of physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician, physician assistant, nursing, personal training, chiropractic, athletic training, exercise physiology, cardiac rehabilitation, public health and gerontology. We have an excellent reputation with top graduate programs in several of these areas, including #1 ranked programs.
