Academics / Departments & Programs / Kinesiology / About Us

As a kinesiology major, you can prepare for exciting and active careers—exercise science, physical therapy, sports management, and therapeutic recreation are just a few. We also offer a dance minor, adding the art of physical expression as a fundamental part of human movement.

As Christians, we believe that human beings are embodied as creatures made in the image of God. By studying kinesiology at Calvin, you’ll not only get a top-notch education, but you will also explore how God reveals himself in a myriad of ways in the moving bodies of the people he created.
