Kinesiology, B.S.

Your active learning and leading style is a perfect fit here. In the simplest terms, kinesiology is the study of human movement, and at LETU, we study movement from the simple to the extreme.

On Campus


You may you see yourself in a hospital setting helping clients as a physical or occupational therapist, on the sidelines as a coach or a trainer, in the classroom as a physical education teacher, in business as a sports manager, as a sports journalist or radio announcer, or you simply have a desire to share your faith through the sport you love.

Our students dig deep with hands-on internship experience and quality training to help them make a major impact in a vast variety of education and health-related fields—two of the top areas for a stable, in-demand career.

Kinesiology is teaching everyone, from the physically gifted to the physically challenged, how and why they should keep themselves healthy and fit. We teach individuals how to be physically active in ways that improve the whole person: mind, body and spirit.

LeTourneau University's kinesiology department offers a number of concentrations to choose from, preparing students for a wide variety of careers.
