The mission of the Texas Wesleyan University Department of Kinesiology is to provide a balanced education for all students. The Exercise Science, Athletic Training, Coaching and Recreation Diving Management curricula are designed to ensure that students emerge with solid vocational skills and are well grounded in the liberal arts tradition.
Our goal is to produce graduates who are knowledgeable as exercise specialists and wellness educators. The Exercise Science Program provides curriculum content that integrates theory, research, and clinical practice to prepare students to function professionally as exercise specialists in health/fitness clubs, corporate health promotion programs, and clinical rehabilitation settings. This program is also designed to provide prerequisite knowledge for continued education in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, or Medicine.
