About UMN School of Kinesiology

The School of Kinesiology at the University of Minnesota has a rich tradition of exceptional scholarship and academic excellence. Our research supports the interdisciplinary study of the physiological, biological, developmental, social, and behavioral bases of exercise, sport, and human movement. Faculty are committed to excellence in research, teaching, and service as they strive to understand the lifespan impact of physical activity and sport on health, disease and society as a whole. This exceptional scholarship is being noticed. In 2015, the School of Kinesiology was awarded 10 research grants and published 75 journal articles and two books. The School is also experiencing growing enrollment numbers, with 660 undergraduate students combined between our Kinesiology, Sport Management, Coaching, and Recreation, Parks, and Leisure Studies programs. A large graduate student population is also present within the School. Masters’ degree-seeking students total 104, with students enrolling in a Sport Management M.A. program, Kinesiology M.S., M.A., and Minor programs, and M.Ed. programs in Applied Kinesiology, Sport and Exercise Science, and Sport Management. The Kinesiology Ph.D. program has 41 students across five concentrations, with the National Academy of Kinesiology ranking this program 6th in the nation in 2015 (http://news.cehd.umn.edu/kinesiology-doctoral-program-jumps-into-top-10-ranking/). Finally, the School is home to the Physical Activity Program, which annually enrolls over 6,000 students from across campus in 1-credit PE classes.
