Department of Kinesiology

Kinesiology refers to "the study of human movement." The B.S. in Kinesiology at Cal State San Marcos prepares students for a wide variety of careers in the areas of rehabilitation, wellness, fitness, public health, and education.  The newly developed M.S. in Kinesiology provides education and training for careers requiring an advanced degree, as well as preparation for doctoral study.  The department of Kinesiology is a member of the American Kinesiology Association.

Kinesiology is an IMPACTED undergraduate program. Supplemental admission criteria are required for entry into the program. Visit "Impaction Status" for more information.
